Sophie Friedman

Sophie is Farm Aid's Administrative and Project Assistant. As well as providing backup support for a number of the staff, she's been enjoying building new relationships as the coordinator for the grants program and for the volunteer program. She joined Farm Aid shortly after graduating from Clark University. Her time spent volunteering on organic farms (WWOOFing) and eating adventurously fueled her interest in food issues. When she's not in the office, Sophie relishes sampling new restaurants, traveling, and petting other people's dogs.
