Patrick Mateer ’15 actively works to fill the gap between local farmers and communities that don’t have adequate access to affordable, healthy food.

Mateer is also a CUBE alum who started at the Campus Y working as a Bonner Scholar, where he served with Farmer Foodshare. He has been named a Forbes 30 Under 30 for social entrepreneurship.
