Yesenia Mejia is a program coordinator for Brighter Bites in Dallas. She started with the organization as a parent volunteer at a Brighter Bites school and later accepted a position as a program associate, working for Brighter Bites part-time.
As a volunteer, Yesenia developed an understanding of the concept and the purpose of Brighter Bites, which turned into a deep appreciation for the innovative approach that Brighter Bites takes to get fresh produce into families hands.
As a mother of two, she understands how important nutrition is to developing successful kids. Yesenia is grateful to be a part of a passionate team that not only supports community nutrition but while doing so is intentional about reaching as many families as possible.
