Click to listen as Hayley Philip interviews Khala.
As D2D’s Social Media Manager, Khala writes and shares content about food, nutrition, and agriculture across D2D’s social media platforms. She also collaborates with her teammates in researching and debunking various health myths, especially those that involve trendy diets and fads on social media. She regularly posts articles about health and nutrition and creates Featured Five articles and our recipe pages.
Khala is also heading up a new D2D educational initiative designed to empower educators to help children understand how their food is grown, where it comes from, and what it takes to get it to their plate. Having grown up surrounded by farms in upstate NY, Khala is still amazed there was no education about agriculture or the local farming community.
Knowing how valuable this would have been in her life, Khala is committed to ensuring more children learn about the food that is not only grown around the world but, quite possibly, right in their own communities.
Khala Hurd graduated with a B.S. in Communication from Cornell University. She worked in digital and social media at Modern Marketing Inc., Thrive LOUD, and WEtv at AMC Networks before joining Dirt to Dinner. In her free time, Khala enjoys exercising, singing, and experimenting with new recipes that she loves turning into videos for D2D’s audience.
