Eric Garrett is a board member of the Boys and Girls Club and a major sponsor of the Steilacoom Farmers Market. The majority of his donations go to organizations that help people who have limited access to healthy foods. In Feeding America's 2020 coronavirus ad campaign, Chef Garrett was seen with a group of young chefs.
Garrett can have fun in the Washington woods. He enjoys hiking with his dog and bouldering with his wife when he is not foraging or teaching others about foraging. Lynda is the more experienced climber of the two, having competed in competitions before joining her husband's kitchen. In May, the Garrett family will expand when their first child arrives.
