BELLINGHAM – Gigi Berardi, a long-time resident and professor at Western Washington University, is releasing a new book, titled FoodWISE: A Whole Systems Guide to Sustainable and Delicious Food Choices.

She teaches food and geography classes domestically and internationally, and maintains the popular food blog FoodWISE.
