Lisa’s passion revolves around food. Lisa believes AIM should be at the forefront as a non-profit food organization. She believes AIM can be a leader in ensuring the farmers and food businesses we partner with are fair and responsible to the earth and environment. According to Lisa, “food is more than taste – we have to showcase where it’s from, and how it was produced.”
