Both undergraduate and graduate students eagerly absorbed her insights, curious about her career journey, her decision to return to graduate school during the pandemic, and her path to the Good Eating Company, where she believes she can make a real impact on the food system.
Spreading Knowledge with a Joyful Heart
Claire enthused, "I love engaging with students who ask all the hard questions." Her passion for sustainability shone through as she drew a map of the food system to demonstrate the complexities of building a regenerative supply chain. The students adored the visual aid, prompting Claire to exclaim, "I realized I should be adding this map to all my presentations!"

She praised Stanford for setting a high standard for sustainable dining in higher education, adding, "It was great to have a chance to visit the campus and see what they are up to.
