SOFSA has been lucky enough to have the talented Paige Clay on our team these past 4 months, who brought her skills and knowledge to SOFSA from Colorado and Wooster as an Emerson Hunger Fellow. Paige has been an extremely valuable member of the team here at SOFSA. A large part of her work includes research on local and regional food policy initiatives. She also has compiled much research about food policy initiatives nationally as a means of exploring potential avenues for collaboration and inspiration. Paige has also helped in the formation of SOFSA’s Policy and Planning Committee, leading initiatives like the Candidate Policy Positions.

Paige is working on wrapping up her Hunger-Free Communities Report, a required product that all Emerson Hunger Fellows must write. This Report will focus in on the food policy agenda SOFSA has shaped; it will also touch on the issues at hand regarding food systems in Syracuse and Onondaga County.

We are so grateful for our time with Paige, and are looking forward to what she will accomplish in the next part of the program that brings the Fellows back to DC. Click below to read her excellent article about her time at SOFSA:
