Dr. James Albrecht is a distinguished scientist who worked at some of the world’s most famous food companies – including Coca-Cola, Nestle, and Baltimore-based McCormick.

"People want to know how they can help. I’m not sure if there’s a better vehicle than BCF to get both a broad perspective of what’s happening in Baltimore and also an understanding of what is needed in direct services and direct action.
