I am currently a sophomore, and my major is Social Work. I have been involved with Campus Kitchen for 4-5 months. I enjoy volunteering because I like helping others and get to see the smile on peoples faces when I serve them food.

Sarah Hanlon – Intern
Amy Jones – Market Coordinator, Community Health Initiative Intern
Amy will be a first year Master of Public Health student this fall in the University of Minnesota’s Epidemiology and Community Health program. After graduating from Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washington, she moved to Minnesota to be close to extended family and begin a career in increasing access to healthy food for everyone. Her experience includes coordinating farmers markets, managing EBT at the farmers market programs, SNAP/Food Stamps outreach and case management, and health coverage navigation. She loves bringing people together around fresh, healthy food – whether that means increasing access to healthy food in her community, or planning backyard dinner parties with friends. When she’s not eating delicious food, she’s fixing and riding bikes, gardening, baking, or exploring the beautiful city of Minneapolis.

Allyson Green – Director
Allyson joined the Campus Kitchen in Fall 2014 after completing an MS in Environmental Justice and Environmental Health. While in graduate school, she spent her time organizing students and digging in the dirt with the University of Michigan Sustainable Food Program and Campus Farm. Her previous experience includes public health research on small-scale gold mining in Ghana, environmental education in Milwaukee, community outreach on water quality and coal mining in Appalachia, and science education research and service learning at Calvin College. She works with food because everyone eats food – it’s a common ground issue that is connected to myriad complex environmental and social issues. When she’s not serving meals or gardening with students, she can be found canning, making homemade ice cream, or wandering in the woods with a Wendell Berry book in hand.
