Jessica Vu, Program Coordinator, AmeriCorps VISTA


Introducing Jessica Vu, Elk Run’s Program Coordinator and AmeriCorps VISTA.


Jessica comes from Olympia, WA by way of New York City. After seeing how differently these two cultures engage with their food, and how disconnected metropolites can be from the things they consume, Jessica realized that her life’s passion lies in promoting a socially and environmentally just yet highly productive food system. Having worked with various food and agriculture-related non-profits throughout college, where she studied issues related to food justice, Jessica is now in her second year of AmeriCorps service as Elk Run Farm’s Program Coordinator. She is very excited to use her experience with education, outreach and organizing to grow Elk Run’s potential!

When she’s not spreading the word about Elk Run, you can find Jessica exploring the beautiful state of Washington in the summer and knitting up a storm in the winter. She would also like everyone to know that, for the record, she is equal parts cat person and dog person.
