What inspires you to do this work?

I’ve always been thankful for the Free and Reduced Meal Program since my parents were too busy working to prepare meals for me to take to school. Growing up, I also attended afterschool and summer programs in my neighborhood, but I never had to worry about being hungry since the programs would provide meals for me. I am happy to be able to be working behind the scenes now supporting San Francisco youth by being one of the steps to providing free meals.

DCYF’s tagline is “Making San Francisco a Great Place to Grow Up.” Do you believe this? Tell us why.

Yes, I do believe San Francisco is a great place to grow up because there are so many youth programs out here that give opportunities to San Francisco youth who otherwise would not be able to participate or try many of these activities due to many limiting factors, such as their economic status.
