Position title: Farm to Community Program Manager, Harvest Against Hunger
A life-long outdoor enthusiast, Madeline (Maddie) Price grew a deep interest in the interdisciplinary linkage of environmental conservation, sustainable agriculture, and food justice during her university studies, where her research explored paradigms from the consumer to the national policy level toward understanding, embracing, and scaling up sustainable food production. She holds a M.S. in Conservation & Rural Development from the University of Kent, as well as experience as an environmental educator and volunteer coordinator to engage the public in ecological stewardship and organic farming. As Harvest Against Hunger’s Farm to Community Program Manager, Maddie coordinates programs that provide funding and technical support for food assistance providers around Washington to purchase food grown by local small farms. Harvest Against Hunger (formerly Rotary First Harvest) is a Seattle-based nonprofit that tackles hunger and food waste by building partnerships along the supply chain, connecting farms, food pantries, truckers, and volunteers to increase access to fresh produce across WA.
