Lorianne grew up in Darby, Montana and has lived in Missoula since 2002. She studied Sociology at UM, earning both a bachelor’s and master’s degree. Lorianne feels incredibly fortunate to call Missoula home and is passionate about the work at MFBN 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. It is exciting to be part of an amazing network of anti-hunger advocates, educating and engaging our policymakers.
