Lorianne grew up in Darby, Montana, and has lived in Missoula since 2002. Lorianne moved to Missoula to study Sociology at UM, earning both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree. She feels incredibly fortunate to be able call Missoula home. Lorianne is passionate about our work because everyone should have enough food to nourish themselves and their families. Food is central to our lives, culture, and health. The best part of Lorianne’s job is having the opportunity to help connect the voices and experiences of Montanans with actual policy change at state and federal levels. Strong public policies and programs are essential to reducing hunger in Montana, and it is exciting to be part of an amazing network of anti-hunger advocates, educating and engaging our policymakers.
