By Hannah Webster, contributor RALEIGH, N.C. — When reflecting on her career, Anupama Joshi attributes her work to good food and community. Joshi, who now lives in Cary, grew up in Dehli, India, where she says cuisine brings people together. "There’s a very strong food culture,” she said. “My mother was the person who brought people into our home with good food, and our table was always full of family and community members.” Joshi, the executive director and co-founder of the National Farm to School Network, has worked in nutrition and agriculture issues around the United States as well as in Europe and Asia.
