Happy Friday! Lots of news below but first want to note the sad news that Mandela Marketplace founder Dana Harvey has passed away. If you didn't know her this 1.8.18 Fast Company piece highlights well her and Mandela's work. Also, we'd like to share that Steve Saltzman is leaving Self-Help to explore new challenges and we've posted an opening here for a Food Systems Commercial Lending leader. (based in Durham, Chicago or CA.)
