Kim joined The Food Project in 2018 as the Grants Manager. She comes to The Food Project from the Asperger/Autism Network (AANE), where she served as the associate director of development. While at AANE, Kim crafted proposals, designed campaigns, and managed events to promote neurodiversity awareness and help people living on the autism spectrum build meaningful, connected lives. Kim received her B.A. in Anthropology from Haverford College and holds a degree in Chinese Medicine. She appreciates how the Chinese model of nurturing the body and spirit reflects a sustainable farmer’s ethos of tending the land. When she is not busy collecting and sharing stories from the field, you can find Kim running along her favorite wooded trails or shaping useful objects at a potter's wheel.
