The 2023 LiveWell Healthy Food for All Culture of Health Champion is Emily Lysen. Emily serves as the Director of Development for the Lawrence Farmers’ Market and Chair of the Douglas County Food Policy Council. She is a force-of-energy dressed in festive food-themed costumes, working hard to improve access to local, healthy, affordable food for diverse populations. In addition to all of her job responsibilities with the farmers’ market, Emily worked in partnership with LiveWell to receive two Pathways to a Healthy Kansas grants that will create opportunities for underserved community members, including Youth, Seniors, SNAP recipients, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color to participate in our local food system.
