Community Food Solutions — Zen Honeycutt
Zen Honeycutt, Founding Executive Director of Moms Across America, an 11 year old non-profit National Coalition of Unstoppable Moms. With the motto “Empowered Moms, Healthy Kids,” Moms Across America grew rapidly in just the first five years, with over 600 leaders that created 1,000+ community events in all 50 states to raise awareness about GMOs, toxins in the food supply and the benefits of organic. Zen has three boys with allergies and autism symptoms which greatly improved when they went GMO-Free and organic. She shared her journey in her book UNSTOPPABLE, Transforming Sickness and Struggle into Triumph, Empowerment, and Celebration of Community published in both the USA and Japan. Zen instigated the first consumer-funded glyphosate testing in America which sparked policy change in over 60 countries and hundreds of cities and towns in America. Costco stopped selling Roundup after MAA supporters petitioned them, and Monsanto, after years of consumer activ- ism and lawsuits, has paid out over 12 billion dollars to plaintiffs. Zen is a firm believer that con- sumer activism makes a difference and her organization works to empower community leaders to be global game changers Zen was also the director of a short film called “Communities Rising” and recently launched a new non-profit pilot program called “The Neighborhood Food Network” to create national food security, one street at a time.
