Emerson Hunger Fellow
Chloe Green supports APHSA in their nutrition work as a 26th Class Bill Emerson National Hunger Fellow through the Congressional Hunger Center in Washington, D.C. This anti-hunger and anti-poverty fellowship equips future leaders with experience in both local community and national policy work with a goal of ending hunger by 2030 through a racial equity lens. Green was previously placed in her hometown of Los Angeles at the LA Food Policy Council, and created their 2020 update to the Food System Dashboard, a comprehensive analysis of the LA Food System.
Before beginning her fellowship, Green was the Advocacy & Research Operations Specialist at the Kaufman Lab for the Study and Design of Food Systems and Marketplaces at the University of Wisconsin, where she worked with farmers markets to implement data collection methods using Farm 2 Facts. As an undergraduate, Green was awarded a Wisconsin Idea Fellowship for her research with accessibility for lower-income and underserved populations at farmers markets and was subsequently granted additional funding to launch a pilot project utilizing her findings in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Previously, Green interned with other organizations in South Los Angeles including Community Services Unlimited, Inc. and SoLA Food Co-op. Green is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and holds degrees in Dietetics and Community & Environmental Sociology.
