Meet Our Team
As Chairperson of Food Heroes, Peggy Liu is one of the leading catalysts of a green China and consults companies and governments on sustainability and cross-cultural collaboration.
In 2013, Peggy launched Food Heroes, China's first comprehensive kids' healthy food curriculum, as part of JUCCCE, an environmental organization that has been at the heart of the greening of China since 2007. JUCCCE is most noted for accelerating societal-scale change in diets, sustainable cities, sustainable consumerism and smart grid with its multi-sector, cross-border convening power. Changing diets is now the main priority of JUCCCE.
Peggy has a passion for connecting personal and planetary health. Her life goal in childhood was to use technology to improve the living standards of people around the world. She believes that the most helpful skill is heart-based storytelling, that cultural translators will have the most important roles of the next generation, and that those who can create a better shared future, should.

During her undergrad, she double majored in Biology and Natural Resources at Cornell University. She once sailed for two months from Tahiti to Hawaii while studying the sustainability of indigenous cultures and vulnerable ecosystems in the Pacific.
Meredith is committed to sustainability, improving food systems and raising individual life standards.
She believes that the most effective way to achieve this goal is through education of our youth.
Her approach is inspired by her passion for yoga and many years of yoga training in the Bay Area.

In this way, she believes we may better equip the future leaders of our world with the skills and knowledge they need to better themselves and the planet.
