Kelly LeBlanc, MLA, RD, LDN, is the Director of Nutrition at Oldways, a nonprofit dedicated to improving public health by inspiring individuals and organizations to embrace the healthy, sustainable joys of the “old ways” of eating—heritage-based diets high in taste, nourishment, sustainability, and joy. Kelly holds a BS in nutrition from the University of Texas, where she completed her dietetic internship, and also holds a master’s degree in Gastronomy from Boston University, with a concentration in food policy. She joined Oldways in 2014 to help promote whole grains and healthy cultural food traditions. As Oldways’ Director of Nutrition, Kelly is responsible for the design, direction and oversight of the organization’s multiple nutrition-related programs, including but not limited to: Mediterranean, African Heritage, Latin American Heritage, Asian Heritage, and the Whole Grains Council. Specifically, Kelly works with other staff members developing and promoting Oldways’ heritage diet cooking and nutrition curricula, conferences and special events, educational resources, and other related nutrition content. Before joining Oldways, Kelly helped research Frances Moore Lappé’s 2015 book, World Hunger: Ten Myths, and also managed an award-winning healthy eating program for Boston College Dining Services.
