Food, Food, Food
Nourishing the body and soul.
The world is a fantastic place. We build community through love, honor, and understanding.
To do something with soul, creativity or love – to put something of yourself into your work.
Together we can put an end to the inhumane actions of human trafficking and domestic violence.

Within the first minute of conversation with Lillian Lake, it’s evident that you are speaking with a passionate and involved community member. Lillian works assiduously in both her research of issues and how situations affect the people and environment of her community. She connects her research in human trafficking and food insecurity between the local and the global, and conveys these connections at speaking events and conferences as a means to educate and advocate for change. Lillian’s sensitivities to the needs of others and her unflagging energies makes a big difference in the lives of many.
