Josh joined The Salem Pantry in September 2023. He comes to the pantry through TerraCorps. As a TerraCorps service member Josh will support The Salem Pantry in many ways collaborating with volunteers, our programs team and our community partners.

Josh holds a bachelor’s degree in Law Letters and Society and a master’s degree in Social Sciences from The University of Chicago.

“I wanted to get involved with TerraCorps and serve at The Salem Pantry in order to gain professional experience at an organization doing incredible work within the local and regional community. As a North Shore native and believer in the right to convenient and reliable access to healthy food, I am excited to contribute to The Salem Pantry during my service term!”
