Areas of Interest

Connor's main areas of interest include sustainable urban development, community-level organization for change, and climate change. He is especially interested in how perspective informs action, and how to build connections with others through common humanity. 

Theory of Change

Connor believes in the power of people. People will always learn from what is around them, and when given the chance will almost always choose to help those around them. His work is about feeding people, but it's even more about building genuine human connection, especially between other members of a community. 

Areas Needing Help

Connor is looking for virtual collaborators looking to establish a similarly sustainable soup kitchen/free food program in their area for those in need. Beyond that, if you have experience coding in Python and would like to donate some of your time, there is a project that could use your skills. If this sounds like you, please email
