Kathleen Merrigan, Former Deputy Secretary of the USDA, will focus on local food and food insecurity during her visit to Vermont hosted by the Vermont Community Foundation.

Named by Time magazine as one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World” in 2010, Merrigan has been a consistent champion for families, farmers, and the environment throughout her career, launching the USDA’s “Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food,” overseeing the development of the USDA Organic standards in an earlier role at the USDA, and working for Senator Leahy as senior staff to the Senate Agriculture committee.

Merrigan will offer her perspective on where Vermont fits in the national picture on these issues, which are central to the Community Foundation’s Food and Farm Initiative.
