Kailey Wilkens was born and raised in San Diego, California, and is currently attending UC San Diego for her Bachelor's in Computer Science. Kailey works at UCSD's Food Recovery Network, collaborating with her team to recover thousands of pounds of food every month and redistributing it to community members in need. Her work at FRN has ignited a passion for food justice and greater sustainability work. This summer, Kailey hopes to expand her food and hunger justice experience beyond hands-on and community work into a larger scale.
