Title: "Women & Food Justice"
Carly Dent is a 2014 graduate of St Thomas with a double major in Environmental Studies and Psychology. Over the last year, Carly co-founded Brightside Produce Distributors, a collaborative system in which produce is distributed to corner stores in low-income neighborhoods in Minneapolis. Carly had many roles in this project, including the mentoring of two youth entrepreneurs, conducting assessments, and heading distribution and sales. She continues to work on the project through UST community engagement as well as full-time at Lakewinds Food Co-op in the produce department. Carly hopes to work with local organizations that are focused around food justice, as she truly believes in the necessity to change our current food system.
