David found his passion for food justice as an Emerson National Hunger Fellow with the Congressional Hunger Center. Through the fellowship, he worked at Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties, conducting research and outreach focused on increasing Bay Area students’ access to free and reduced-price school meals. He also worked at MAZON, supporting their campaign to fight military and veteran hunger. As the Education Coordinator, David is excited to work at the intersection of education, food access, and equity by helping connect schools across the district to local food systems. David holds a degree in Educational Studies and Public Policy from Swarthmore College.
