Sarah began at BFN on August 15 and is already working hard to get our Hub Kitchen project off the ground sometime in October (see below for more details about this new program). She will also be directly responsible for our off-site food distribution programs. We are very excited and fortunate to have Sarah join the BFN staff.
Sarah is a professionally trained chef with experience in making delicious and nutritious food out of “what you’ve got.” In addition to her culinary background, Sarah has been working at the California Association of Food Banks as the Advocacy Manager where she has been deeply involved in policy work aimed at improving access to food for everyone in California who lives with food insecurity. She has a Master’s in Public Policy from Mills College and a BA in Sociology with a focus on Social Welfare Programs and the Safety Net from UC Davis. Sarah looks forward to being able to blend her passions for cooking and food-insecurity policy work at BFN. Please join me in welcoming Sarah to our network!
