Interview with Megan Haupt

Megan Haupt is leading a seminar on Healthy Food Relationships this coming Saturday, January 27th at the Tulpehocken Exchange from 2-3:30 pm.

I first met Megan years ago, through our mutual involvement with a variety of community and arts events. The one that stands out in my mind is Swap O Rama Rama, which, as I understand it, Megan facilitated. This was a huge event with easily a thousand people in attendance. It was a clothes swap with workshops, dedicated to reducing textile waste by keeping clothes out of the landfills and waste stream. This was an expertly run event. Handmade Philly was one of the many organizations present, hosting workshops.

Years later, I attended a class hosted by the Permaculture Society, at Wyck House in Germantown. Megan was the instructor, leading an engaging dialogue on miso, complete with history, nutrition, preparation and cooking demos. Again, the information I gathered that day resonated, and I incorporated miso into my life at a much deeper level than before the class.

When we opened the doors to Tulpehocken Exchange, I reached out to Megan and of course, asked her to get involved. These days her focus has been on food education, which leads us to Saturday, when Megan will be leading a seminar on Healthy Food Relationships. We do hope you’ll join us!

Below is an interview I recently conducted with Megan.

Name: Megan Haupt

Age: 46

Hometown:  Langhorne, PA (Bucks County)

Current town:  Flourtown

Job description:  Founder, Hungry Education

Bio:  Megan has been a food educator for over 12 years, teaching adults and children in community-based settings. She believes that food education must meet people where they are in order to be effective, and that educating the entire family is essential to help kids become food-smart. Her areas of interest include: food history, food science, and food culture.

In addition to her education experience, Megan has launched several small businesses and has professional backgrounds in higher education, business (non- and for-profit), and the performing arts.

Megan is an active member of PA Nutrition Education Network.

Upcoming projects:  More picky eating research, designing a summer camp for Reading Terminal Market.

Describe your work. Forward facing with TONS of research.

What themes and concepts does your work generally revolve around? I am fascinated with food history, food science, food culture, and food futurism and how all of them are currently intersecting.

What are you currently working on? How to get people to pull back the curtains when it comes to diet and food. Most people are afraid to look and I am trying to find ways to make it less scary.

What’s been happening in your life? A LOT of shifting. Delving into these topics of food relationship and personal accountability has been uncomfortable for me as well.

What’s next for you? How do we get people to engage around the topic of food relationships. How do we demystify and how do we bring it to a digital environment.

Describe your current state of mind. Constantly running.

What’s inspiring you? Really exciting changes in storytelling as a whole. Old narratives need to GO!

Is any of your work political? Oh yes, but mostly on an individual level. Food is deeply personal, larger changes can only occur when there is widespread individual change.

What are you trying to communicate with your art? Food is WAY more than just nutrients. Food parallels life. If you are not engaged with your food, you are not engaged with your life.

IMG_1481

What is one of the biggest challenges you face? Time and how to balance work and life.

Has the meaning of your work changed over time? Most definitely. I am almost full circle with my understanding of food and life. I see that I will most likely be closer once I go through menopause.

What is your dream project? So many. Maybe a food ed conference for educators around the topic of food relationships.

Do you collaborate with other people? All the time. A good collaboration is exhilarating. A bad one is crushing.

What are a few of your favorite spots in your area? Wissahickon, Norristown Farm Park, Erdenheim Farm, The Farm Cooking School, Good Spoon Soupery, Hungry Pigeon, Kensington Quarters.

IMG_3193

People in your field whom you most admire: Edna Lewis (the Grandmother of farm-to-table), Heather Thomasan (founder of Eat Retreat, Primal Supply Meats, lady butcher), Marion Woodman.

What are you reading? “The Edible Woman” by Margaret Atwood.

Favorite comic strips/ comic books/ graphic novels? Krazy Kat, anything by Chris Ware.

What are you listening to these days? early Deutschpunk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZnDbY-Jc6o or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGYH9lT9Ru8

What was the last show you attended? Sleep at Union Transfer; it’s been a while.

What was the last exhibit you attended? PHL Assembled at PMA Perelman bldg.
