We’re thrilled to announce that Stephen Satterfield will join our team as part of the first cohort of the Culinary Trust’s Growing Leaders Food Writing Fellowships. The fellowships are designed to help cause-driven food writers early in their careers develop their skills and unique voice, learn more about food issues across the country, receive valuable mentoring, and publish strong work.

The Culinary Trust launched the fellowship program with Civil Eats, and several of the Edible publications, because we “champion food stories that connect with the Culinary Trust’s mission to help people understand and act on critical issues in food,” said Laura Atkinson, executive director of the Culinary Trust. “The Trust values the great diversity of important food writing happening across the country and wants to reflect that diversity in these fellowships,” she added.

We profiled Satterfield last year and have tracked his impressive work ever since, including his recent efforts to launch Whetstone magazine, which he envisions as an exploration of “the origins of food we eat and drink.”

Sattefield, who has just returned to the U.S. after a stint in the Dominican Republic, said, “I’m excited to improve my writing skills and learn from a team with a tremendously high journalistic pedigree and digital media savvy. As one who frequently laments the lack of attention given to the food movement by traditional media outlets, I’m grateful for the platform and opportunity to add to the rich dialog and learning that takes place on the site each day.”

We are thankful to the Culinary Trust for selecting Civil Eats as a partner in the fellowship and we look forward to working closely with Satterfield, who will focus on stories of food culture and food justice.

Today’s food system is complex.

Invest in nonprofit journalism that tells the whole story.
