Sara M. Albert

Sara earned her B.A. and J.D. degrees at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, where she practiced corporate law. Over the years, Sara developed a deep interest in public policy that shapes how our food is produced and distributed, and the damaging effects that lack of access to affordable, nutritious food has on physical and community health. In 2013, to align her career with her interest in food system reform, she completed an LL.M. degree in agricultural and food law and policy at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. Currently, as a consultant, her expertise lies at the intersection of public policy and practice, and she works on programming and advocacy initiatives at the local, state and federal levels to promote and support anti-hunger and poverty alleviation measures.

A lifelong Dallasite, Sara has served in leadership roles on the Boards of Temple Emanu-El (where she has been a member for over 30 years), Parkland Foundation, Southwest Medical Foundation, The Hockaday School, Temple Emanu-El Foundation, National Council of Jewish Women, Crossroads Community Services, and Girls, Inc. She also presently serves on the Leadership Teams of Dallas’ Anti-Poverty Coalition and the Dallas Coalition for Hunger Solutions, for which she chairs its Public Policy arm.
