Origins of Food
11 South Maple Street, #3
Vergennes, Vermont 05491

Origins of Food organizes and runs experiential food tourism programs domestically (within the U.S.) and internationally. Origins of Food is committed to encouraging a more active consumer by reaching beyond the supermarket shelves to reconnect people with where food comes from. We believe if consumers understand how, and why, the food system is broken, they will be motivated to effect change. Origins of Food works with Vermont's educators, businesses and organizations to create custom service learning programs to turn today's foodies into food activists.

Show Bio
Lindsey spent seven years in marketing, advertising and PR in the private sector, and in 2011 escaped the cubicles of New York City to found herself nestled in the vines of Mendoza’s wine country as a harvest intern. What was meant to be a five month hiatus became a four year journey around Latin America, Australia and New Zealand. A life-changing role at a Peruvian disaster relief organization convinced Lindsey to continue working in the non-profit sector, and a few stints with a Guatemalan coffee cooperative, an Australian organic farm and various WWOOFing properties, locked her into the good food movement for good. Lindsey and her partner Matthew founded a food education tourism project, Origins of Food, that reconnects people with where food comes from.
