The world is truly small.
On the same day I was told to check out this cool organization by some amazing educators in New Mexico, I learn that this organization had already found our bus! No Food Left Behind (NFLB) is West Hawaii’s Local Food Bus. On a campaign for zero waste, NFLB goes around the island, focused in rural West Hawaii, to bring “more local food to local plates and improv[e] the health and wellbeing” of the community. This gleaning project rescues fruit and veggie crops to get fresh produce into the local systems. Especially since Hawaii is on an island, more locally-sourced food means less waste and less dependency on imported foods.

With a flair for spontaneity, pizzazz, creative excellence and her own unique sense of aesthetic grace and perspective, we have our very dear friend, Belinda (or B, to some of us). Although an incredibly accomplished professional and career woman, B’s down-to-earth approach and demeanor transcends all scenarios, communities and people. She manifests, in her day-to-day, the essence of the word “Zomppa” as demonstrated by her extraordinary commitment to creating sustainable and positive change for us and future generations to come. She’s asked for a dog every year since she was five. Check out Belinda’s work on global education research and coaching: www.hummingbirdrcc.com or more about her portfolio www.belindachiu.com.
