Laura Jayne is from Arlington, Virginia, and soon entering her senior year at Syracuse University. They are pursuing a dual degree in Food Studies and Environment, Sustainability & Policy with a minor in Information Management and Technology. She is thrilled to represent the Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics as a Class Marshal and serve as a co-President of the university’s chapter of Food Recovery Network. In the surrounding community of Syracuse, New York, Laura acted as a Health Justice and Evaluation Intern at Syracuse-Onondaga Food Systems Alliance (SOFSA). This experience and others in organic agriculture, nutrition education, and local food retail have fueled her passion for employing holistic, community-based solutions in fighting food apartheid. In her free time, Laura loves to cook, walk, sail, and read food studies literature. She is ecstatic for the opportunity to lead and facilitate the co-creation of knowledge in the anti-hunger space as a Zero Hunger Intern at the Congressional Hunger Center.
