Chef-Restaurateur and Activist

Just who we were hoping dominated the list, Alice Waters is most certainly a visionary in the food world. Waters is renowned for introducing a whole generation of Americans to the very notion of organic and locally sourced food, with her Edible Schoolyard and School Lunch Initiative programs to improve childhood nutrition, and her Chez Panisse Foundation, which uses food to “teach, nurture, and empower young people.” She supports the Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act, and was largely responsible for encouraging Michelle Obama to create a White House garden. Kudos Alice Waters – we love you.
