My name is Stuart Mapes. I’m 22 years old and grew up around Richmond, VA. I recently graduated from the College of William and Mary where I majored in English and Government. My favorite things to do are read and exercise, and in preparation for my year as a Young Adult Volunteer (YAV) in Boston, I started learning to cook. This year I hope to learn and experience how the blessing of food can nurture communities and the environment.
