Podcast Feature with Maryland AgWorks


We talked with Maryland AgWorks

In December, Board Member and longtime Days of Taste Director, Riva Kahn was interviewed by Peggy Eppig on Maryland Agricultural Education Foundation’s podcast, Maryland AgWorks. This podcast series features people who live, work and teach in the world of agriculture and we’re so excited that a TWK representative was included!

On the episode, Riva tells us about the history of the Days of Taste, how she made an unexpected career change to join the program, and how there are so many ways to grow into and from a food industry career.
