Anya Fernald: Slow-Food Activist

These 40 up-and-comers—all 40 years old or younger—are changing the way Americans eat and drink, from a vodka distiller who rewrote Nebraska's Prohibition-era laws to a White House chef who's fiercely fighting to improve school-lunch programs.

Anya Fernald, 35, worked with Alice Waters to organize the first Slow Food Nation event in San Francisco three years ago—a seminal moment. Now the founder of the consulting firm Live Culture Company, she helps small-scale artisans expand their businesses while following principles of sustainability. She also founded the Eat Real Festival in Oakland, California, with the premise that good food should be about fun, not denial.
