Ali Benjamin is a gifted communicator who tells stories about the issues that most affect our world: healthy food, smart responses to hunger, education, the planet, and the frontiers of science. Her work has appeared in print, online, and on television.
Ali is the co-author of The Cleaner Plate Club: Raising Healthy Eaters One Meal at a Time. It’s a pretty good book; check out the reviews here. She has written for the Boston Globe Magazine, Martha Stewart’s Whole Living online, and was the sole story researcher/ casting director for the hour-long primetime special, Sesame Street: Growing Hope Against Hunger, which won a 2012 Emmy Award. She has spoken about food and hunger all over the country. She is a member of New England Science Writers. She is currently working on two book projects: one about the environment, and another a biography of a teenager who was bullied for a medical condition.
When not working, Ali chases children, drinks coffee, runs some, wrangles dogs, visits farm stands, and teaches kids about storytelling and writing. She serves scrambled eggs for dinner far too often. Once in a while, she enjoys a good mojito.
