The Pandemic, Food Econ & the Grain Industry – Christine Cochran
“My background bridges agriculture, trade, and nutrition, so I can help those that are looking to bulk up their ‘food literacy’. Where our food comes from, how to understand science, how we should actually choose what we feed ourselves and our families… These are the questions I have spent many years studying and thinking about. I help people redefine their reality with fact-based information that they were either missing entirely or had not been presented in an engaging way.” - Christine Cochran
