Please join us in welcoming Maggy Keet as our Individual Giving and Events Officer!
One of Maggy’s most satisfying projects was the one she managed in Africa. “It felt impossible most days – endless setbacks, supply shortages, monsoons, red tape. But together we kept pushing, working, adapting and we completed our project on time and on budget. It was a very proud moment for all of us and taught me very early that literally nothing is impossible when a community comes together around a shared dream.”
Maggy is a mom, climate activist, and the founder of Planetarian Life, a non-judgemental platform that teaches people how to align their lifestyles with their hopes for the Earth, primarily through food. Whether you’re looking to eat less meat and/or dairy for the planet, for your health, or for the sake of animals, she’ll help you learn how to shift your way of eating to a more plant-based one. She is an avid hiker, a passionate composter, and an advocate for low-waste living. Maggy recently transplanted from New York City to Westchester, NY where she lives with her husband, Andy, and their two kids Dash and Nova.
"If there is one thing I know for certain it's that good things happen when people gather in a kitchen - stories are shared, connections are made, humble ingredients are transformed into incredible meals. The Second Chance Foods kitchen is no different! I loved seeing the friendship, laughter, and comradery between volunteers. I immediately recognized that this kitchen vibe was one of the organization's greatest assets." - Maggy

To me there’s nothing more satisfying than a buttered and salted ear of freshly picked corn on the cob.
