Imari is passionate about sustainability and believes that food justice can only be achieved by recognizing, respecting, and uplifting marginalized communities and their connection to the environment. She believes that restructuring school food is an incredible way for children to create a special bond with their local agricultural communities and natural environment.

In her free time, Imari enjoys thrifting, baking desserts, studying interior design, and playing with her rescue dog, Miso. She is enthusiastic to join the Chef Ann Foundation and hopes to empower communities as they learn about the changes being made in school districts across the nation!

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.
