Juliet Harris

Anti-Racist Toolkit for Farmers Markets Workgroup Member

Juliet “JuJu” Harris’ passion for the connection between health and food was sparked when she saw her father successfully manage high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, and borderline diabetes through diet and exercise. A self-taught cook and organic gardener, JuJu knows firsthand that it is possible to easily and inexpensively prepare delicious, healthy food, as she once received food assistance benefits of WIC and SNAP. Juju teaches community cooking classes, with a special focus on eating well on a budget and post-partum nutrition and care. JuJu’s book, Healthy and Homemade: Eating Well On A Budget, is available for purchase at www.nanajujurocksfood.com
