Introducing FoodChain's next Executive Director

We are very excited to welcome Chaquenta Neal as FoodChain’s next Executive Director. Chaquenta is a native of Pine Bluff, Arkansas, relocating to Lexington to pursue a master’s degree in agriculture economics from the University of Kentucky. She was a 4-H youth education agent for youth development in the UK Cooperative Extension System for more than 6 years, during which time she partnered with FoodChain as part of our Farm to School efforts. Most recently, Chaquenta has worked as a diversity recruiter in Undergraduate Admissions at UK for more than 2 years.

“I feel so at home with the organization and its mission. It is allowing me to bring my passion for agriculture, community, and youth development into one and that is huge for me. I am so excited about the journey ahead and humbled to serve the community of Lexington doing what I love.”

Our Story

Here at FoodChain we believe all people deserve access to fresh, locally-sourced food. It is our mission to model a path towards a more connected and equitable food system. Through education and demonstration of  sustainable food systems we are forging links between community and fresh food– providing real, innovative solutions to address food insecurity here in our community.
