Associate Director, National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition
Reana Kovalcik is a Board Member with Slow Food DC and also serves on the National Policy Committee for Slow Food USA. Despite being a city girl, Reana has long been interested in good food, sustainable agriculture, and protecting the natural environment. As an Associate Director at the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition, Reana works with a team of expert policy and grassroots staff to elevate the voices of family farmers and leverage federal policy as a catalyst through which to make agriculture more sustainable (for farmers, eaters, and for the environment). Reana describes her work primarily as “translation,” helping to make complex agriculture policy work understandable for and engaging to the public at large. Reana lives in DC with her partner, two cats, and what she hopes will someday be a flourishing backyard garden.
