Morgan McKinney

Process Innovation Project Associate, American Public Human Services Association (APHSA)

Morgan McKinney is a Process Innovation Project Associate at the American Public Human Services Association. In her current role, she leads the Coordinating SNAP & Nutrition Supports program, which strives to align the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) with various federal, state, and local nutrition supports, aiming to alleviate hunger among children and families while bolstering the capacity of human services agencies to facilitate community-driven service delivery.

Morgan was a fellow in the 28th cohort of the Emerson National Hunger Fellowship where she collaborated with Community Farm Alliance in Berea, Kentucky, to build a grassroots campaign advocating for state legislation to bridge the gap between locally grown, nutritious foods and individuals facing food insecurity. Subsequently, at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., Morgan researched policies and programs that directly impact the economic mobility of youth with low-incomes.

Prior to the Emerson Fellowship, Morgan spent three years as an implementation research assistant with Duke Global Women's Health Technologies, where she worked to make cervical cancer screening more accessible for women in rural areas.

Morgan holds degrees in Public Policy and Global Health from Duke University.
