Author of Farm to Table for Schools

Budd is a chef with a passion for helping local farmers thrive and for providing tasty nutritious meals. He combines those passions into his efforts to bring farm-to-table programs to academic institutions. 

Having helped several schools successfully implement F2T programs and derive significant benefits from having done so, Budd knew he had a powerful message to deliver, and dreamed of writing a book; but he also knew that he didn’t have the skills to write a book himself. Budd wrote his book and handed it over to SkillBites to clean it up, provide a cover and get the book up on Amazon and in print.

Budd relayed, “My book has accomplished more for me than I had ever dreamed. Everything has snowballed since writing the book. In just the few short months that it’s been out, I’ve gotten 10 or 12 speaking engagements from it, a radio interview, some consulting assignments, as well as opportunities to meet key people I most likely would never have had met had I not published a book, like Tom Vilsack, the Secretary of Agriculture and Michael Nutter, Mayor of Philadelphia. A college professor has even contacted me about using my book as a text for his sustainability class.” 

Budd added, “SkillBites was incredibly helpful and did a great job. They took the time to understand where I was coming from and what I needed. I know I couldn’t have done it without them. I am so thankful to SkillBites for their help in making my book a reality.”
