For the past several years, Michelle Yellin has become increasingly passionate about where our food comes from, how it is made accessible to us, and how that food determines our present and future health. When Michelle learned about the opportunity to serve as Volunteer Maryland Coordinator with Friends of Great Kids Farm, she was excited by the opportunity to be a part of an organization that is trying to influence the way kids look at healthy eating.
When Michelle learned about serving with Volunteer Maryland and Friends of Great Kids Farm, she knew she had found a position that would offer her valuable training that would carry her through her professional life, and allow her to give back to a community that could benefit from her knowledge and enthusiasm.
After her term of service, Michelle hopes to earn a master’s degree in Urban Planning with a focus in Urban Agriculture and Food Systems. Educating under-served populations about nutrition and healthy eating are important long-term goals for Michelle, and she is confident that her service with Friends of Great Kids Farm will help her grow in the areas of supervision, leadership, record keeping and organization.
