Anne Karlen
Director, Fair Food, White Dog Cafe Foundation

Ann Karlen is the founding Director of Fair Food, launched in 1999 as the first program of the White Dog Cafe Foundation. To further Fair Food's mission of making connections between Philadelphia chefs and farmers in Southeast Pennsylvania, Karlen consults with farmers, chefs and other wholesale buyers to help build business relationships and bring more local food into the Philadelphia marketplace. In addition, she runs the Fair Food Farmstand, a retail farmstand open year-round, Wednesday through Friday in the Reading Terminal Market. Selling all local produce, meat, cheese, dairy, and value-added products, the Farmstand provides consumer access to sustainable and humanely-raised farm products and education about sustainable local food systems to thousands of people each year.
