As an adult who wears many hats – mother, grandmother, food services manager at Paradise Valley Hospital near San Diego – Cindy Quinonez has been drawn back into the world of fish by an awareness that today’s children are increasingly disconnected from their food. “Kids don’t connect with food or know where it comes from,” she says. “Look at the number of kids who are diabetic, pre–diabetic, or obese. Prevention is so much better than dealing with the ravages of disease.” Prevention, she thinks should start with local, sustainable food. With her fishing roots, she’s particularly partial to seafood.
