Central’s chef Richard Phillips has always been steadfast about the commitment to “eat local.” At Central, he partners with local farmers, as well as those across the state. Learn why it’s important to eat local, the benefits to your health and to food sustainability, and how you can buy local, too.

Richard Phillips was born in Canada to Welsh parents who moved back to Wales when he was 1. He met his wife Kellie the first week he was a student at Central, and they’ve been inseparable since then. Kellie has owned and operated Monarch’s, while Richard has been at Central since 2012, presently as Director. He’s an excellent singer and at one time worked in theater, TV, and film.
