Alex Frantz

Midwest Foods
Director of Local & Sustainability

Alex Frantz is the Director of Local & Sustainability at Midwest Foods, a woman-owned, Chicago-based produce distributor delivering food from farms to institutions. Passionate about exploring systemic solutions to the challenges presented by an inequitable and unsustainable food system, for half a decade Alex worked alongside college students to advocate for shifts in sourcing at their dining halls, and for a third-party certification to recruit and promote farmers implementing high-welfare practices and pasture-based management. In her current role as steward of Midwest’s local Veloccity program, Alex has built upon a foundation of storytelling and reporting to develop innovative partnerships with farmers and foodservice clients at institutions like K-12 schools, colleges, hospitals, and senior living facilities to address the most common issues regarding access, consistency, and transparency and develop successful, substantive values-based sourcing opportunities.
