Alumni Story by Logan Strenchock: “Pursue a career path that reduces the distance between your passions, research and work”

April 10, 2021

My name is Logan Strenchock and I was born in Pennsylvania but have been studying, working and residing in different countries in Europe for the last 10 years. I was a member of MESPOM batch 17-6, and enjoyed some memorable times in Budapest, Greece and Sweden. I wrote my thesis about the development of local food systems in and around Budapest, and it gave me plenty of time to get my hands dirty in understanding the complexities of transformative short food supply chains in practice.
