This is an oral history interview with Dr. Temple Northup conducted as part of the Houston History Project. Dr. Temple Northup is co-director of the Gulf Coast Food Project, which is based at the University of Houston Center for Public History. The Gulf Coast Food project is focused on food research in the Gulf Coast region. Northup elaborates on one of the branches within the project, Houston Eats. Elements of the local food movement were discussed in depth. They include farmers markets, sustainability, and key players in Houston that have influenced the movement. He described the local movement, unintentionally, has an elitist connotation, which lead the project to shift its focus towards food access issues within the Loop. From his experience, Dr. Northup points out how the local food movement is vastly different within the U.S. and how it differs from where the movement originated, Berkeley, California. Interviewer: Ismelda R. Correa.
