Karen Burson is a self-trained chef living in Hamilton. She established the Bread & Roses Café that operated out of the Sky Dragon Community Development Cooperative in downtown Hamilton. This organic/fair trade café won a major national award from Canadian Organic Growers in its first year of operation, on a shoestring budget, with no paid advertising or marketing. Karen went on to establish Kidzfood, the city's only local/organic healthy school lunch service, which now serves three area schools. Karen is now the new Project Manager for Hamilton Eat Local, under the wing of Environment Hamilton. She administers three busy blogs, writes for two monthly publications (H Magazine and Mayday), and is founder and a current Co-chair of Slow Food Hamilton.
