Alex Walsh

Nutrition Incentive Hub Coordinator

As Program Coordinator for the Nutrition Incentive Hub, Alex provides support to the team and coordinates partner management, technical assistance and communications projects. He works alongside Fair Food Network’s partners to co-create inclusive, timely, and creative resources for nutrition incentive practitioners.

Alex is an anthropologist by training as well as an advocate for food justice and building community power through food. He grew up in Connecticut where his love of food stemmed from working in the backyard garden and enjoying fresh seafood on trips to the beach. After working as an archaeologist, Alex found his way to farming and food justice work while living in Austin, Texas. Alex has worked across the food system, from farms and farmers markets to food service and food pantries. He continued this food access work in Pittsburgh, running a mobile farmers market program, free produce distributions, and conducting grassroots outreach to connect folks with food.

Alex serves on the advisory board of the Queer Food Foundation and much of his work centers on improving food access for his community and others that are disproportionately impacted by food insecurity. Alex loves to cook, camp, hike, and work in the garden. He’s also learning to play ice hockey. His favorite way to start the day is coffee on the porch with his partner and two cats.
