Rachel Manning is currently a second year student at Oberlin College majoring in Sociology and East Asian Studies. She is involved with a variety of food justice activities on campus, leads community service trips during academic breaks for Oberlin students, is a head cook for her co-op, and has recently started after-school cooking classes at the local junior high school in town. After graduating from college, Rachel plans to focus on making local, sustainable foods available to schools and communities with little access to fresh, healthy food. She loves community gardens, co-ops, cooking, and great food!
