From our Board of Directors and Culinary Panel, to our Friends Advisory Board and Community Advisory Boards (CABs), we’re fortunate to count so many strong leaders among our lot! Every month, we introduce you to one of them.
This month, it’s Monee Vance: Member of Lovin’ Spoonfuls’ Greater Boston Community Advisory Board and the Assistant Manager of Match Support at Big Sister.
My former employer, ABCD, to whom Spoonfuls’ delivered some of their rescued food.
It was not until I was introduced to Lovin’ Spoonfuls that I began to think about myself and my own waste. I also became an advocate for food access, justice, and freedom.
I wanted to join the CAB community because I was coaxed by Lauren Palumbo. Kidding! I wanted to join because I knew it was important to have a group of individuals discussing issues around food access and its relation to food waste.
I do my best by not buying things I will not eat. I also do my best to purchase items that have less packaging or packaging that is recyclable. At work, I do my best to convince my coworkers to do the same.
