Haley Baron

Education and Research Program Associate

Haley has worked across the food system for over a decade, first developing her love and passion for food and social justice while growing up in San Francisco. She has worked on a variety of anti-hunger and food access programs, farmed certified organic land, sold and bought local produce, and managed large-scale program evaluations. She has spent the last seven years working on and learning about the complexities of the food system so that she can help build a more just and sustainable world. 

Along with her work for OFRF, she also oversees operations and city staff for pineapple collaborative, a community for women who love food. She has a Master's in Food Studies from New York University, where she focused on sustainable food systems and the organic supply chain, a B.A. in Sociology and Spanish from Wesleyan University, and a graduate certificate in Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems from Tufts University’s Friedman School of Nutrition. In her free time, Haley is usually traipsing around local farms, exploring new hikes, eating dumplings, and cooking with lots of vegetables.
