To celebrate Cabot’s Centennial, we sought to find dietitians who share in Cabot’s principles of cooperation, commitment to community, and other core values and honor them with the Cabot Community Celebrity Award.
And the winners are:
- Pat Terry (Alabama)
- Toni Bowman (DC)
- David Trinkle (Florida)
- Serena Ball (Illinois)
- Amanda Hege (Kentucky)
- Theresa Stahl (Maryland)
- Cary Skelton (Missouri)
- Jamie Pepper (New Jersey)
- Sarah Fine (New Jersey)
- Manju Karkare (North Carolina)
- Heidi Hetzler (Rhode Island)
- Wanda Koszewski (South Carolina)
The amazing group of dietitians selected for the Award truly demonstrate a commitment to the profession. They each give selflessly of their time by volunteering and/or supporting their community through other efforts, programs, and initiatives. These attributes, together with their actions to promote ‘community spirit’, encourage eating local foods, and supporting agriculture within the state, exemplify the values of Cabot’s farm families.
And one standout has been selected for Cabot’s Community Celebrity Cruise, in September 2019.
Congratulations, Manju Karkare!
“Volunteering provides a strong connection to my community and gives me a great deal of personal gratitude. My passion for nutrition drives me to give in the areas of hunger and nutrition education… This award exemplifies the role of RDNs beyond the clinics, schools, kitchens, and labs and into the fields, farms, and sources of food.” – Manju Karkare, MS, RDN, CLT, FAND
