On March 1, 2019, the Eastern Shore Food Lab in Chestertown held its inaugural community pizza night, welcoming students of Washington College and citizens of Chestertown to a night of sustainable eating and camaraderie. The ESFL is an establishment founded and directed by Dr. Bill Schindler that’s dedicated to educating the public in sustainable food systems, all in the context of the Eastern Shore food-shed. “All of the components of the pizza that we made were made in the food lab…we made the dough, we made the cheese out of milk from a local dairy farm…It’s important to buy products that are made locally and we get to support local businesses…it teaches people not to be overly dependent on the food industry,” said Melissa DeFrancesco, a WAC freshman and Environmental Studies major who is an ESFL intern.
