Organizer, Soil Health & Climate and Regional Food Systems, Policy Department
Laura Schreiber first joined LSP as a Higher Education Consortium for Urban Affairs (HECUA) intern in 2018, helping to launch our Local Foods Campaign. She has worn several hats with the Land Stewardship Project and the Land Stewardship Action Fund since. Laura coordinated LSP’s 2019 Family Farm Breakfast at the Capitol and can confirm it is the best breakfast in town. As an organizer with the Land Stewardship Action Fund, she also organized our members to get out and vote during the 2020 election. Passionate about creating a more diverse, resilient and just global food system, Laura knew that to create real change she needed to organize in her community and build the power of Minnesotans across the state to achieve the type of food system that people and the land need. In her current position on the Policy Team, she is thrilled to get to work with our members to make their voices heard at the Capitol and to work together to craft solutions for a better Minnesota. When she is not listening to food policy podcasts or trying to set up compost programs (but really, if you’re excited about waste management, she’s your gal) or reading recipes books and cooking (her dream is to own a small cafe one day), she can be found hiking and climbing around Minnesota! Originally from Rogers, Minn., Laura graduated from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities in 2019 with degrees in Urban Studies and Public Relations and a minor in Leadership.
