Double Up Food Bucks Program Coordinator
Frances is the program coordinator for Double Up Food Bucks New York State. She is deeply passionate about working towards an equitable local food economy and working to ensure that all people in our community have access to fresh fruits and vegetables. Her love for locally grown produce was sparked at an early age, when she “worked” at the Lexington Co-op as an elementary school student. Frances has a bachelor’s degree in Government from Cornell University, and brings a great deal of experience in community-based programming and development to Field & Fork.
A former Division I athlete, Frances finds great joy in coaching high school rowing at the West Side Rowing Club. When she’s not at the office, on the water, or re-watching episodes of Peaky Blinders with her dog, Willow, you can probably find Frances at Remedy House enjoying a cortado (made with heavy cream, for those keeping track).
