Anna believes that food is a tool to empower communities, families, and individuals. Prior to working at The Good Acre, Anna served in the FoodCorps as a Garden Teacher in Jackson, Mississippi, worked as a Family Wellness Coach at HCMC, and was a Farm to School Intern for Minneapolis Public Schools.
As Farm Share Manager, Anna coordinates with our network of farmers to provide for an 18-week produce subscription program for over 450 members. Her responsibilities include contracting with growers at the beginning of the season, doing outreach about The Good Acre and it’s mission, as well as coordinating food donations to organizations that serve those in need.
She is passionate about getting adults and kids alike excited about local food, and when she isn’t thinking about vegetables you can find Anna freelancing at the Birchwood Café, translating training and HR materials for their Spanish speaking staff.
