I do a number of public speaking events each year. Right now, I don’t have anything scheduled, but check back later!


If your organization would like to book me to speak at a conference or other event, please contact Carol Schneider at the Workman Speakers Bureau:


  • Hi, Leanne,
    Your book is great.
    I’m using it in a course I’m teaching a Food-themed semester to college students.
    I’d love to discuss with you how feasible it is to stay within the bounds of the $4.00/day in the city, especially in Lower Manhattan, where we are living.
    Let me know if you are doing a local event at some point this spring or would be willing to come as a guest speaker to my class.
    From a fellow Canadian and Home Cook,
    Naomi Guttman

    Hello, Leanne. I’m a case worker in a supportive housing program where most of my clients are elderly, previously homeless, and on a fixed income including SNAP/Food Stamps. We recently attended a training for AWARDS program but also happened to see this book being distributed at that site. I’m so glad this came to my hands! I’m totally sending this to our Nutritionist because this is GOLD! Thank you so much!

  • Teresa Neel says:

    Hi Leanne—- I just found out about you and I am crying, I am so touched by your message and your earnest and humble, humanitarian approach! I was a chemical dependency counselor for 20 years before a series of pretty bad head injuries left me disabled. I didn’t make a lot of money as a counselor, and I make less on disability. The shame and the fear can be so hard! I am so grateful that there really are caring and wonderful people like you out there! Thank you

Tell me what you think!
