Meet Megan, our new Program Manager!

Blog / Meet Megan, our new Program Manager!
We are excited to have you join us as our seventh(!) full-time employee. What made you want to get involved with Fresh Truck?

I come from an academic background, so research studies are the way I became familiar with the barriers people face to eating healthy and accessing fresh food. As I was working with this information, I wished that I could provide resources and programs for them to tackle these challenges. I started volunteering with Fresh Truck a few months ago and loved what I learned about the shoppers, their cultures, and what they enjoy cooking and eating. The shopping experience at Fresh Truck is unique, and I was excited to help people connect with this valuable resource.

A big part of your role will be designing programs that celebrate food and food culture. What’s a significant memory you have of food?

Eating delicious sweet mangoes in Taiwan with my family. Growing up, my parents and grandparents loved feeding us, so mangoes and other fruits would magically appear in front of us.

What are you excited to bring to the Program Manager position?

I am excited to figure out new ways for the markets better serve our shoppers and provide a great shopping experience. I think it’s amazing that Fresh Truck has generated so much demand across the city, and I want to make sure the shopping experience is as enjoyable as possible for as many people as possible. A big part of my role will be creating strong partnerships with community organizations, bridging cultural gaps, and constantly tweaking our programs to make them better.

You know it’s coming. What’s your best food pun?

Didn’t that cereal expire last week?

Yes, but I shallot it anyway.
