Noellie SotomayorStudent Nutrition Program Senior Coordinator
I started volunteering at my children’s downtown school in 2001. In 2005, as the coordinator I helped launch the snack program for 500 students. Running the program I was able to gain the skills that would eventually lead me to being hired as a Student Nutrition Development Animator with FoodShare in 2008. With the skills I developed from overseeing my own program, I was able to assist coordinators to manage and sustain their nutrition programs. Currently, my role is a Student Nutrition Program Community Development Senior Coordinator. Besides working with school and community programs helping their nutrition programs become sustainable, I have also been involved with a local Food Security Network for 2 years. Working for FoodShare allows me to share my passion and dedication to the importance of student nutrition programs.
