Meet Our New AmeriCorps VISTA, Cody Addison

Getting To Know Cody Addison.


Where are you from?

Richlands, Virginia

As someone that grew up just outside West Virginia, what is one word you would use to describe the state? 


Where were you before joining the West Virginia Food & Farm Coalition?

In college at Radford University, studying music.

What do you look forward to most about being in West Virginia?

I grew up in the same area that I went to college, so I’m most excited to experience an unfamiliar area, to learn about the state and experience what makes it unique and enjoyable. I intend to explore the outdoors as much as possible here.

If you were a vegetable, which would you be and why?

A potato because I’m flexible. Boil me, mash me, stick me in a stew.

What is your ideal long weekend, with an unlimited budget?

A road trip of course, with stops at every record store and seafood place along the way.

What are you listening to on your morning drive?

Newgrass Revival

What is your favorite meal?

Hot wings! I will try any hot wings I can get my hands on. But pizza is a close second. I have a rare addiction that doesn’t allow me to go more than one week without pizza.

If you could share a meal with any person, deceased or alive, who would it be?

Beethoven, even though he probably wouldn’t like hot wings…but he would be a great drinking buddy.
