While Michael Pollan is definitely one of my top food heroes, I find this list to be a little bit incredible and am curious how it came about. Walmart's food buyer? Really?
In addition to Pollan, my food heroes are Robyn O'Brien, a tireless activist on the issue of GMO's and additives in children's foods; Wenonah Hauter, a committed and accomplished real food lobbyist and founder of Food and Water Watch and author of "Foodopoly," a brilliant book; and Jamie Oliver for his work for improved school lunches. Second line heroes are Tyler Florence for his dedication to informing parents about organic, home-made babyfood and how easy and healthful it is for the little ones, and the Food Babe for her appeal to young people and her savvy marketing skills--she has made a real difference in getting the word out about the importance of food and health.
