About Anjali

Anjali Patel is a Registered Dietitian (RD) specializing in public health, research and community nutrition.  Born and raised in Ottawa, Canada, and after graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Life Sciences, Anjali moved to a small town in Kumamoto, Japan where she taught English and spent her free time on grassroots internationalization projects centered on food and culture. It was during this work her passion for community nutrition was born. She returned to school to pursue her RD and Master of Public Health, and on the side worked in nutrition research, nutrition communications and public health programs and strategy. In 2011, Anjali moved to the United States and worked with the restaurant industry on environmental change and consumer behavior change research funded by the Center for Disease Control and the National Institute of Health.

Anjali is a food and nutrition educator who creates programs and strategies that aim to foster a positive relationship with food while maintaining cultural foodways and social health.  She believes that food holds much more power than nourishment to the body — it’s identity, belonging and what connects us.

Anjali enjoys skiing, swimming and traveling to different countries not only to experience the culture but also to try their food. When she is not working, you can find her with her family somewhere around the world or in her kitchen playing with food.
