Juliette Frank

GFI Fellow - Class of 2020

Undergraduate student, public affairs major, food studies minor


Juliette’s project is centered around creating a partnership with Native folks and local governments to improve soil health and craft policies around regenerative farming. Using Native/local knowledge in partnership with Western science to build a symbiotic relationship between nature and humans will allow Indigenous communities to reclaim their spiritual, political, and cultural identities through food sovereignty while implementing sustainable practices that will benefit community health. Food acts as an intersection point between health and inequity and ecosystem and individual health, making our food systems the optimal place to create systemic change.
