November 2015

The issue is food as the Bulletin profiles alumnae working in different corners of the food industry, surveys Bryn Mawr’s food-to-classroom offerings, and talks with Mawrters focused on one of the most serious challenges of the 21st century–food security. Plus, Washington Post reporter Carol Leonnig ’87 wins a Pulitzer and Minneapolis mayor Betsy Hodges ’91 talks about building the 21st-century city.

On the cover: At the Westchester Land Trust, Kate Sann ’05 serves as a matchmaker between farmers and landowners.
