Daikon Dave loves teaching Sacramento elementary school kids how
to cook and eat fresh fruits and vegetables. He has over 6 years
of experience as a certified food literacy instructor. As Program
& Operations Coordinator, he works with farmers and vendors to
ensure the highest quality of food and education that our kids
deserve and develops new recipes for our kids to enjoy.
David first came to Food Literacy Center as a program intern in
2015 after getting his Associates’s degree in Nutrition and Food
from Cosumnes River College. After seeing a need to empower kids
to make their own choices about eating healthy, he served Food
Literacy Center for two terms as an AmeriCorps member before
accepting the Program & Operations Coordinator position.
David feels it is incredible to see our kids eat a fruit or
veggie they have not tried before.
