As Switzerland is a small, landlocked country, and labor is very costly, waste of any kind is frowned upon. We adapted to a minimal waste lifestyle. As a board member of HFR, I can pursue my interests in resource conservation, local food and healthcare. In particular, the intersection of fresh, nutritious food and good health".
Cynthia worked in the healthcare industry for 30 years in the US and Europe. She designed services for patients with chronic diseases, including medical reimbursement support and disease education.

Owner, Haderlie Farms organic produce
"As a farmer, I detest food waste. Our culture allows exorbitant quantities of useable food to go to landfills in the name of food freshness and ill advised safety concerns. Hole Food Rescue is filling a critical need by redistributing usable food and providing venues for awareness and education. I am honored to be involved in this timely and important endeavor".
Curtis Haderlie has been involved in agriculture, horticulture and organic growing for most of his life.He grew up on a dairy farm in Thayne, WY and as a teenager he built his first greenhouse where he raised various flowers and vegetables. He later graduated with a degree in Crop Science from the University of Wyoming. For the past 14 years Curtis, along with his wife Karen, has operated Haderlie Farms, Wind River Herbs and Wyoming Soaps on the family farm in Thayne. The farm produces organic vegetables, herbs, cut flowers, eggs, raw cow and goat milk, beef, pork, and lamb. Inedible food scraps from Hole Food Rescue are send to Haderlie Farms for livestock feed.
Annie Fenn M.D.
“As a practicing physician in this community for over 20 years, I have seen many families who don’t have enough to eat. Food insecurity leads to a myriad of health problems — infections, poor healing after surgery, preterm labor — that are mostly preventable. I joined the board of HFR to help with the effort to feed the hungry in our community, to repurpose excess food, and to help us all learn how to stop wasting so much food.”
Growing up in a Sicilian-American family in upstate New York, Annie attributes her aversion to food waste to her frugal grandparents who never wasted a scrap of food. She moved to Jackson in 1994 to practice obstetrics and gynecology, which she did as a solo practitioner for 6 years before opening the Women’s Health Center of Jackson. She retired from medical practice and now writes about food, health and sustainability. Annie collaborates with St. John’s Medical Center on the Brain Works dementia prevention program, teaching participants how to cook with the brain-healthy foods proven to prevent dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
