Philadelphia FPAC

Katrice Cheaton

CheatonKatrice Cheaton is a Community Advocate who got involved with the Philadelphia Food Policy Advisory Council to stay informed about food justice issues in the city and to work with Council members to get more community members, particularly low-income community members, involved in food justice politics at the policy level. Finding an inclusive table where policy makers are open to bridging the divide between the policy makers and the people directly affected by the policies created is what made her interested in the work of FPAC. A graduate of the Philadelphia City Planning Commission Citizens Planning Institute, Katrice is combining the knowledge she gained from the Institute with her B.A. in Advertising from Temple University and her Certificate in Fundraising & Nonprofit Management from The Nonprofit Center at La Salle University to help increase community engagement around food justice and community development issues in Philadelphia.
