Our People

Buckeye Food Alliance is an organization that thrives because of the time, effort, and energy that all of its members put forth to ensure its success. Without the help from all of our various members, volunteers, and advisors, BFA would not be where it is today.

Take a moment to get to know the people of BFA below!



Thomas is one of the original founding members of Buckeye Food Alliance, as well as the person ultimately responsible for the organization's creation. It was Thomas's idea to begin a student-run food pantry at Ohio State.

Thomas graduated in May 2016 with a B.S. in Marketing and Economics, including a minor in Campaigns & Elections. He is currently working in the public affairs and public relations industry, and remains involved with the food pantry post-graduation as Chairman of our Board of Advisors.

As one of the co-founders of Buckeye Food Alliance, Alec helped to bring the idea of a student-run food pantry at The Ohio State University to life.

Alec graduated from OSU with a B.S. in Economics and Strategic Communication in May 2017. Post-graduation, Alec is working as a Business Development Specialist at Dynamit, a custom web and mobile design and development agency based in Columbus. Additionally, Alec is the Treasurer of BFA's Board of Advisors.

Katie holds the distinction of being the very first student recruited to join Buckeye Food Alliance's student leadership team. Her contributions were invaluable in getting BFA to its grand opening in March of 2016.

Still a current student at Ohio State, Katie is working on a degree in Marketing with a minor in Fashion & Retail Studies. She expects to graduate in May 2019.
