The first Monday of each month is Member Monday where we feature member photos or a video on our Instagram and Facebook pages. Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund (FTCLDF) is proud of our members, and we take great pleasure in highlighting their operations and the awesome work they are conducting in sustainable farming, animal husbandry, artisanal production, and homesteading. See below for November’s member photos!
Gail Weinberger is the owner of Gail’s Cupboard LLC, which she established in 2012. Operating out of Gail’s home in her gorgeous certified kitchen, Gail’s Cupboard has since become a hub for the local food movement in Northeastern Pennsylvania and has provided nutrient-dense food to her community. Gail is a health coach and received her training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program. During her training she studied over 100 dietary theories and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts, including Dr. Andrew Weil and Dr. Deepak Chopra.
After 7 years of holistic health counseling, Gail became frustrated with the lack of quality food available to her clients and customers looking for healthy alternatives. Gail sprouted the idea of Gail’s Cupboard as an effort to provide the local community with nutrient dense, traditional foods sourced from local, organic, and fair-trade businesses, using all certified organic and fair trade ingredients whenever possible. All other ingredients for her products are grown using organic practices by Gail herself or local farmers. She believes in teaching people how to use food as medicine. Gail’s Cupboard products include elderberry syrup, beet kvass, calendula lip balm, tallow lotion, kombucha, sprouted maple granola, various fermented foods, and more.
