Culinary Operations Manager

I’m a native New Yorker, who loves all things food. So much so I have a masters in Food Studies from NYU. I have worked in various food spaces for the past decade finally landing where I am in KIPP. I’m passionate about students even if they grate every nerve I have and ones that I didn’t know existed.

Who We Are

The Chef Ann Foundation is dedicated to promoting whole-ingredient, scratch-cooking in schools. Scratch-cooking enables schools to serve the healthiest, tastiest meals so that kids are well-fed and ready to learn. 

Our Mission

Ensure that school food professionals have the resources, funding and support they need to provide fresh, healthy, delicious, cook from scratch meals that support the health of children and our planet. 

Why School Food Matters

American kids start their life-path in K-12 schools where they learn the skills necessary to thrive & meet their potential. While the country debates the best ways to teach them math, science & English, we spend little to no time on food & nutrition.
