I am Anissa Zagonel and I grew up in southeast Kansas on a production agriculture operation where we harvested the usual wheat, corn and soybeans, along with running my family's fried chicken restaurant… Yes, you heard correctly, I said fried chicken.
From planting the seeds in the field to harvesting crops to preparing and serving meals, food, in all its forms, has been a large part of my life. With my curiosity of the world's food system and my farming background, I was led to Kansas State University, where I am currently a junior majoring in agricultural communications and journalism and minoring in agronomy.
I look forward to my future involved with the Food For Thought organization and all the advocacy adventures it brings!
Lastly, GO CATS!
