Lucy serves on the fundraising team as the Associate Director of Development. In this role, she engages with a vibrant, inspired community of individuals who love The Food Project and are committed to keeping it growing strong. Lucy joined the team in 2014 as a Development Officer for Individual Giving & Events and was in charge of planning the Big Shindig, Farm Lunches, and other avenues for supporters to experience and connect with The Food Project. Previously, she worked as Project & Event Manager at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Lucy holds a B.A. in Spanish and Studio Arts from Holy Cross in Worcester, MA where she was first exposed to social justice and inspired by Jesuit values. A native of Cape Cod, Lucy loves clamming, swimming in the ocean, travelling, and experiencing other cultures whenever she gets the chance. Lucy’s favorite foods are basil pesto and ice cream (not together, although there’s an idea!) She is proud to work for an organization so deeply committed to young people and communities of color—and to fundamentally changing the systems and ideas that affect how we treat each other, our food, and the planet we share.
