Anna Lamond and Masha Vernik

Anna Lamond and Masha Vernik are best friends who have grown a passion for food alongside each other. Over many meals, we shared anger at our current food system and dreams about how to build a better one. Though we shared a passion, we pursued it separately – Anna followed a filmmaking path and learned about the food media world through an internship with Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street, and Masha researched agroecology in Ecuador then worked on a vegetable farm near Seattle. We’re currently working on a web series that takes a look at how our current food system cons us out of eating healthily, how it got this way, and how we can get out of it.
