Hunter’s Underground Butcher profiled

The Fall 2018 issue Edible Madison featured the work of La Follette School Alumnus Jonny Hunter and the Underground Butcher. “While pursuing his studies and following his heart toward a life in politics, Hunter learned to cook, and from that perspective took interest in the more elemental aspects of sustainable local food systems,” Andy Radtke wrote. 

The Wisconsin Alumni Association (WAA) named Raul Leon (MIPA ’07, PhD ’10) as one of its eight Forward under 40 recipients for 2018.
