Alyssa Adkins is originally from Wilmington, Delaware where she grew up enjoying local strawberries, peaches and cider applesauce from a neighborhood farm. She moved to NYC to study music and nutrition, eventually becoming a Registered Dietitian and completing her Masters of Public Health. Hoping to use her expertise at the community level, Alyssa jumped into the local food movement. She landed in a series of “growing” experiences, from McEnroe Organic Farm upstate and the Long Island City CSA as farm liaison, to Greenmarket. Alyssa’s next step in obsessively exploring the food world from every angle is a foray into entrepreneurship—she is currently working on starting a Queens-based ice cream company.
