Denise created the Thoughtful Food Project (TFP) to simultaneously address food insecurity and social isolation amongst seniors and youth. Thanks to Denise, TFP has built a public garden designed for seniors next to a low-income housing complex (all produce is shared with the residents for free), a shared school-community garden (has supplied 1,000+ lbs of produce/yr for free salad bars in the HS and families in need) and has started a demo food forest at the school. A true hero!
