Alisha Pruett was born and raised in good ol' Greenville, South Carolina. She went to school at University of South Carolina, then transferred to Hunter College, City University of New York. There, she obtained her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. Soon after, she began her career within homeless services and social work. Alisha has been working with non-profits, specifically homeless services for over 13 years. She has worked within larger cities like Charlotte and New York, as well as several rural areas. Once she witnessed the downward spiral one faces when not able to obtain resources, especially fresh food, she began her trek to seek optimum health for all. Thus, she gets to “the bulb” of the problem by being motivated to cultivate community through service and fellowship around healthy food. Above all, she likes to turnip the beet and have a good time!
Mobile Market Manager
India Solomon wears many hats. We met her at one of our markets in Lockwood (north Charlotte) where she is an active resident in making change to better her community. She is a Cafeteria Manager at CMS and has great experience in food safety practices. She has a passion for whole foods and serving local produce to her community and amazing children (aka marketeers) We are happy to have her motivation, expertise, and positive outlook to lead us on our journey for a food secure city.
Walker Spruill is one of Charlotte’s leading advocates in food and social justice. If you can’t find her helping to haul veggies at our markets, you’ll find her volunteering for major causes like 100 Gardens, Pop Up Produce, Food Not Bombs, and more. Also, she works with Ray Terry with “Put Tools in Schools.” Her knowledge on overall waste reduction tactics has steered our mission on a no waste path. Her lively and lovely spirit has helped us rock and veggie roll.
