2020

Dear #anovafoodnerds,

This year has been a tough one and many are excited for it to be over. There has been inexplicable loss, political turmoil, and grief over missed celebrations, gatherings and our old way of life. We hope that you are safe and healthy, and that you continue to be in the new year.

As with most dark clouds though, there are silver linings. For me, 2020 was tough, but ultimately I’ll remember it as a year of hope. 2020 reinforced my belief in the importance of Anova’s mission and highlighted how awesome our #anovafoodnerd community is. This year also revealed the character of the people on the Anova team. I was inspired by the work they did and I want to highlight some of it for you.
