Hello! My name is Elise Hanson and I am a Hamline student majoring in Environmental Studies with a concentration in food studies. I became interested in food as a child when I began to cook with my family. In college I attended an alternative spring break trip to Growing Power in Milwaukee, WI which sparked my interest in food justice. From there I began taking classes, doing research, and working with community partners in the Urban Farm and Garden Alliance to learn more about local and nationwide food justice work.I am interested in curating stories about systems change, imagining a new food future, food and recipe stories, stories of overcoming injustice, stories of now(current struggles/fights) and stories of reconciliation.
