Feed LouisvilleJoin us for our monthly EcoReps workshop featuring locals making a difference in sustainability!

We'll kick off our spring series with the inspiring Rhona Bowles Kamar, co-founder of Feed Louisville.

For over 20 years, Rhona has been creating healthy dishes at Ramsi’s Café on the World, her family’s restaurant in Louisville, KY.

She also writes about food, teaches cooking classes and creates personalized menus for private clients.

She is also co-owner of the family’s Raising Hope Organic Farm and is a huge advocate for organic farming.

She is the mother of three children. She has a degree in journalism from the University of Kentucky and is a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

Rhona founded Prana, a wellness food + beverage company with a mission to bring vibrant, plant-centric food + zero-proof beverages to our community.

Then the Cornavirus Pandemic hit and Rhona and a group of restaurant owners and volunteers began changing the way Louisville takes care of its food insecure population. Rhona’s original purpose for Prana is quickly evolving and becoming more than she ever imagined. She had always wanted Prana to give back to the community in some fashion, and now she has found a way to do it through Feed Louisville, a collaborative that’s serving hundreds of meals and evolving every day. And at the center of it is Rhona, living her passion and giving back to her community when they need it most.

The Sustainability Council’s EcoRepsEco-Reps logo program is designed to move students, faculty & staff beyond talk to action for a more sustainable UofL! We provide basic training & resources, service opportunities, and leadership positions as a point-person & peer-to-peer advocate for sustainability. More info on EcoReps website.

This spring, we continue our series of live, virtual workshops each month on last Fridays at noon. All are welcome.
