Meet Ibti Vincent, Localistposted Tuesday, October 18 by
In 2009, Ibti set out on a bicycle for 14 months to learn about local, sustainable food around the country before returning to DC as a food educator.
Why she calls herself a localist? “In addition to my conviction that local, seasonal food tastes better (which it does), I believe that supporting local growers and small business owners is one way that we can improve our local economies. I may not have a lot of money, but I choose to put it directly into the hands of people I know and trust. Especially when they make a killer espresso,” explains Ibti who adds her three favorite LOCAL haunts have caffeine.
