Joselyn Walsh

Joselyn Walsh grew up in rural Missouri, and has an undergraduate degree in Anthropology from Washington University in St. Louis, where she studied Food Systems & Environmental Justice. She received a Master’s in Social Science at the University of Chicago, where is studied white supremacy in the American food system through an ethnographic approach to science and technology studies.
Joselyn first worked on an urban farm in St. Louis during the summer of 2015. After she left St. Louis, Joselyn worked as a research and writing intern at Food First in Oakland, CA, and volunteered with the Nashville Food Project in Nashville, TN. She began volunteering at UGC in the Spring of 2019, and began as a Sales Associate with the Fresh Moves Mobile Market program in the Fall of 2019.
Joselyn is proud to know that she can help communicate to others in her community the necessity for, and possibilities that exist to heal a food system that has been shaped by inequity for centuries, especially in the context of creating awareness in those who have never had to worry about where their next meal will come from.
In her free time, Joselyn likes to go on runs around the city, sing and write music, and find new ways to cook tofu.
