Noel joined CRFS in the fall of 2014 and his work is focused on two areas: The Michigan Food Hub Learning and Innovation Network, and the Livestock Work Group, which seeks to build Michigan's meat supply chains through market development, research, and outreach. He received a master’s in Gastronomy with an emphasis in food policy and systems from Boston University. Prior to graduate school, he worked as a meat, seafood, and fresh foods buyer for a cooperative grocery store and a local foods market in Philadelphia. Noel's interest and passion for food stretches back to his childhood in rural northern Michigan, where he learned to grow, cook, and eat good food.
