Dubbed “That Food Guy” in a public photo at the Austin City Limits Music Festival in 2007, Mike has embraced his role as food enthusiast ever since.

But in 2019, Mike is taking on a new challenge: That Food Guy Saves the World.

By focusing on locally sourced ingredients, minimizing his own carbon footprint, eliminating single-use plastics, and embarking on a zero-waste challenge for the year, That Food Guy hopes to do what he can to change the world.

This blog will track Mike’s progress, trials, victories, and shortcomings throughout the year. Follow along to take part in the adventures.
