Introductory Profile: About Andrew W. Smiley

This is Andrew W. Smiley. He is the Deputy Director of the Sustainable Food Center (SFC). I came to meet through my mom, who works with him. I interviewed him in a park near a local farmer’s market on Wednesday, March 8, 2017. He is a middle-aged man who has dark hair and a beard. He looks healthy and active. He funny, witty, and he is passionate about his job.

We covered questions about his job, things he's done, food justice and social justice, how they relate, the Double Dollars Program, and some stories. I felt very comfortable during the interview. Things went along smoothly. We ended the interview with me asking him what he usually eats and asking if he would like to add anything to the interview. He said, “No, other than I just appreciate you for taking on such a complex topic and such a deep subject.”

I said, “Thank you for your time" and we ended the interview.
