Community Food Access Coordinator
Wilmington, NC
 Jordyn Appel, Local Food Access Coordinator, is Michigan grown and had an early passion for environmental consciousness and action. While attending Grand Valley State University, she worked in New Zealand and the greater Grand Rapids area farming small to mid-size sustainable and organic farms, operating and designing market stands, researching sustainability and food access, and designing educational programs while serving as a service-learning coordinator with AmeriCorps VISTA. She transplanted in Wilmington as a FoodCorps service member with Feast Down East in 2015 and spent two years engaging students, school communities and local partners in garden and nutrition lessons and initiatives. Jordyn is excited about continuing her work with Feast Down East, mobilizing collaborative efforts to build a more equitable, accessible local food system
