About Us: Our Team is Growing

Blog / About Us: Our Team is Growing

The About Fresh team has been busy for the past few months: expanding markets and partnerships, building a new COVID-response program, and growing our team! In our commitment to getting healthy food to households that need it most, we have added several members to our team to support our growing community reach and impact. “About Us” invites you to become more familiar with our team and work through our newest team members’ words and experiences.

Meet Ben, Stephen, and Casey

This week, our spotlight is on three of our talented team members who recently joined the About Fresh team, Fresh Truck Market Manager Benjamin Diaz, Fresh Truck Coordinator Stephen James, and Fresh Box Project Manager Casey Hogan. In their roles, Ben, Stephen, and Casey work to get healthy food to the community through both our Fresh Truck and our COVID-response program, Fresh Box.

Check them out below and follow their stories on our Instagram, @aboutfresh.

Describe yourself in one word? “Free!”
Stephen James, Fresh Truck Program Coordinator
What are you excited to bring to About Fresh’s work?

Stephen: I’m excited to bring the team player aspect to work. A real mission-focused and community-focused attitude. I’m excited to bring that focus to keep our people, our work, and communities first.

Casey: The About Fresh team already did an amazing job creating Fresh Box as a response program during the pandemic. It’s such a source of reliability and positivity for people in such a rough time. Now that we are in phase two, I’m excited to look at it from an efficiency lens and how it works for everyone from people driving to receiving boxes.

Ben: I’m excited to bring my food expertise, especially my knowledge about fruits and vegetables from different food cultures. When someone asks, “How do you cook Yuca?” that’s when I light up! I try to expand people’s minds regarding different types of foods and things they don’t regularly eat in their diet.

Boston Beaches or Boston Snow?  
“Boston Beaches!”  
Casey Hogan,
Fresh Box Project Manager
What do you enjoy about living & working in Boston?

Casey: I love the food scene. Boston also gives you options. Beaches aren’t too far away, and there are many historic landmarks in and outside of the city.

Ben: No matter where you go, you’re home, you are like family. The blend of people and the mixture of cultures expands your mind. I enjoy places like old Boston, Charlestown. The city has so many beautiful things to fall in love with.

Stephen: I love the diversity. I love to see and hear different languages, accents, cultures, the way people dress and engage with each other. I love the diversity of Boston neighborhoods. There’s a lot of people with a lot of passion and organizations doing great work.


Favorite spice to cook with? “Five Spice & Adobo”
