Ed and Amanda Smith on Leadership, Community, and Health: PYP 198
February 20, 2017
Ed and Amanda Smith are the co-founders of Healthfest, a three-day annual event in a small Texas town that's become an unlikely hub of plant-based nutrition in the United States.
Marshall, Texas, population 27,000, is smack in the middle of the "stroke belt." Where beef is king, hunting is a rite of passage into manhood, and if it ain't deep-fried, it ain't food.
And there, where Ed served as mayor, is where they decided to bring plant-based knowledge and practice.
