Caitlin Troutt is a bachelors candidate studying Human Services, Social Justice and Sustainability at the George Washington University in Washington, D.C. She tailors her studies to food systems and food justice, including proposed field research in Cuba during the 2015-2016 academic year to explore their use of urban agriculture to promote community food security. In addition to her academics and her work with Food Tank, she is currently engaged with three D.C. area nonprofits: DC Greens, the Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture, and the Breastfeeding Center for Greater Washington. Caitlin hopes that her life’s work will involve sustainable and equitable local and global food systems and helping communities develop food sovereignty. She also hopes to someday grow most of her own food on an off-the-grid homestead.
