Alexandria Huber is a current senior at UNC-CH studying Public Policy and Environmental Science. She is passionate about sustainable food systems which has led her to be director of a local food education student organization, FLO Food, receive a fellowship and study farmers’ markets in Europe, volunteer at local farmers’ markets and study food waste at Georgetown University with a REU. Her latest project focuses on the financial sustainability of small-scale farms in the Durham and Orange county. Throughout the year she will interview farmers on their current financial sustainability and factors that have led to successes to help create a better understanding of how best to financially support small, local farms. The project will culminate in her senior honor’s thesis in April of 2017. She is grateful for the support of the Carolina Global Food Program Scholarship and the Public Policy department at UNC.
