Judith Barry

Jude Barry is the assistant director of the MSU Center for Regional Food Systems (CRFS) and has worked at CRFS since 2012.  Jude’s aspirations lie in the development of a good food system (one that is healthy, green fair and affordable for all) driven by market demand and rooted in community needs, that incorporates all types of local and regional agricultural growers and producers: small, large and all in between.  Her programmatic work most recently has focused on assessing Michigan’s local and regional food system workforce and identifying workforce development tactics to support economies and communities through food. Previous work has included the Michigan Good Food Charter, the CRFS meat and livestock work, and the Michigan Good Food Fund.  During her career, she has worked in agricultural business development, marketing, education and outreach roles in industry and academia in Michigan, England and across New York State. Jude earned her BSc in Animal Science from Edinburgh University, UK and her PhD in Applied Biochemistry from The University of Nottingham, UK.
