    Perhaps you’ve never heard the name (I hadn’t), but author and activist Joan Dye Gussow has been growing and advocating organic food since the 1950s. Her suburban-homesteader ethic is the subject of her book This Organic Life, and she created a Nutritional Ecology course at Columbia’s Teachers College, where she was a professor of nutrition for years.

    Just Food is worth your charity dollars–they do remarkable work in New York City, uniting local small farmers with communities in so-called “food deserts,” which lack access to fresh, healthy food. A delicious win-win!

    What: The Joan Dye Gussow Gala to support Just Food. Featuring guests Michael Pollan, Brian Halweil, Dan Barber & Peter Hoffman. Cocktails and lots of New York food after the speeches!
