Sonia Escobedo is focused on reducing food insecurity and waste in East Palo Alto and North Fair Oaks. As our Food Recovery Program Coordinator, she oversees the boots on the ground to run our biweekly Food Distribution program that helps 1,000s of community members by rescuing 20,000 pounds of food from local landfills. She also cares deeply about the participants we serve. “Having a connection and relationship with community members motivates me to continue my work. Helping as much as I can and knowing my work helps others is the reason I love what I do.”
Before joining Nuestra Casa in 2019, Sonia worked at the Primary School as a family and community engagement assistant. She was born in Guadalajara, Mexico and raised in East Palo Alto along with her three siblings. In her free time, Sonia loves spending time with her family.
