A great guy and a first-class leader in food systems who deserves kudos for his long service to this organization. Young was also the principled, fearless and fair Board President for CFSC while I served as its V.P. (due to his request) near the end of its long life; in those last difficult days we all grew to admire him a great deal. I’ve expected this news (just based on the number of years he has held this demanding job!) but still am hopeful he continues in other food system work, maybe working one with a regional or national focus this time around.
Young Kim, who has been the executive director of the Fondy Food Center and directed its farmers market since 2003, has left the north side organization.
