Vani Hari        

Food Activist & Blogger

Vani Hari started in April 2011 to spread information about what is really in the American food supply. She teaches people how to make the right purchasing decisions at the grocery store, how to live an organic lifestyle, and how to travel healthfully around the world.

Impassioned by knowing how food affects health, Hari loves sharing her message on the blogosphere to 3 million unique readers across the globe. Hari convinced the biggest fast food chain in the world, Subway, to remove a controversial ingredient after receiving 50,000 signatures in 24 hours on her petition to the chain. After receiving tremendous attention on her posts about Chick-Fil-A, she was invited by the company's leadership to meet at its headquarters to consult on specific improvements to ingredients used by the national chain, which they later implemented. 7 months after Hari petitioned Kraft to remove harmful petroleum-based artificial food dyes from Mac & Cheese, Kraft responded by removing the dye from all products aimed at children.

Hari's activism brought national attention at the Democratic National Convention when she used her status as an elected delegate to protest in front of the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture on the issue of GMO labeling. Hari has been profiled in the "New York Times", "USA Today", "Washington Times", "Chicago Tribune", appeared on "The Dr. Oz Show", "Good Morning America", "Doctors Show", "NBC News", "Fox News" and is a regular cooking contributor on NBC's "Charlotte Today" and food expert on "CNN".
