In Their Words: Nancy Weiss
Since becoming the food service director of the Santa Barbara Unified School District in 2008, Nancy Weiss has completely overhauled the school food system. She replaced heavily processed, pre-packaged, heat-and-serve meals with whole-food, made-from-scratch dishes. She is particularly passionate about plant-based nutrition and fresh produce and has a close relationship with many local organic farms. She joined OPN Connect for a conversation about her work.
