ChristineChristine Schantz

Christine spent most of her childhood barefoot, climbing trees, and eating stone fruit in the family orchard in Pennsylvania. While her career took her from the investment banking world in New York to an independent high school in Marin County, CA, the farm never quite left the girl. Christine is the the former Northern California Regional Governor for Slow Food USA and a seasoned veteran of the Good Food Awards, having volunteered and tasted her way through the Charcuterie, Preserves, Confections, Beer, and Honey categories. She revels in the writing of Harold McGee, MFK Fisher, and David Mas Masumoto; and she joins the Good Food Foundation with an eye toward combining her technology, finance, education, fundraising and food experience into one delicious whole.
