Forum Panelist and Urban Farmer Will Allen Appears with Michelle Obama at The White House

Will Allen, the Milwaukee urban farmer who appeared at the Revolutionary Thinkers Forum earlier this Season, shared a stage with Michelle Obama at The White House yesterday as she launched a new program to combat childhood obesity.

Allen founded Growing Power, a nonprofit program that aims to provide healthy, quality and affordable food to people in all communities. At The Forum last October he discussed how he came back to farming after growing up a farm kid outside of DC and his belief that good food should be available to everyone.
