Meet Our Team: Tiffany Chung

January 19, 2024

Meet Tiffany Chung, Foodwise’s Director of Education. Tiffany oversees Foodwise Kids, Foodwise Teens, and public education programs like talks, cooking demos, and farm tours.

Tell us a bit about you, your background, and your role at Foodwise.

My name is Tiffany Chung and I am the Director of Education at Foodwise. I’m one of the newer people on the Foodwise team, joining at the start of 2021, and it’s been such an amazing new chapter for me. Ever since I was young, I have cared deeply about food, and my love for food and all of the intersections and connections that food brings about only continues to grow. At Foodwise, I get the opportunity to relive my first experiences with really good food as a child every time I get to bring youth to the market or bring good food to youth. 

What inspires or motivates you about your work?

What I really enjoy about my work at Foodwise are the people and the community that I feel I am becoming a part of. Everyone I have had the pleasure of working with so far cares so deeply about the work they do, and seeing that passion is really inspiring. I also love seeing the excitement in kids’ faces when they try something unexpectedly delicious and declare that fruit or vegetable to be their new favorite. 

What do you do to recharge outside of work? 

I love to eat and cook—there’s no bad mood that can’t be cured by eating something delicious, especially when sharing with friends and family. Outside of the food world, I love being outdoors, hiking, and getting out to the beach when I can. Day to day, I also enjoy doing yoga, reading, and hanging out with my cat, Granola.

Do you have any favorite farmers market foods or tips you can share?

Definitely take the opportunity to talk to the farmers if they’re available and ask them about the food they’re growing! Even though I’ve practically grown up at farmers markets, each time I go out to see what fruits and vegetables are available, I’m still surprised by the amount of variety there is and I learn something new each time.

Is there anything else you would like to share? 

Thank you so much for your support to keep this community going strong! We believe in good food for all and your support helps us realize our mission.
