Alice Waters ’67

When Waters opened the world-famous restaurant Chez Panisse in 1971, she never imagined that offering “real food” would help spark a revolution. More than anyone else, she is responsible for the movement to eat fresh foods that are grown locally and sustainably. Her latest focus, the Edible Schoolyard Project, aims to get children into the garden and kitchen to change the way we eat, one student at time. Follow her on Twitter @AliceWaters.

One thought on “Alice Waters ’67

  1. Really, the University is honoring Alice Waters under three categories? Really? Three? As a native Berkeley resident and alumnus of Cal (1968), I confess I get a bit rankled by the city’s over dependence on her to promote Berkeley’s notoriety. As for her food revolution, I would suggest it’s more of a foodie revolution. Enough!.
