Our Team


Karen Rogers
Founder and Director

Favorite Foods: I love fresh fruits and vegetables. Pickeled, sautéed, boiled, chopped, raw, cooked – there is no form that I don’t enjoy. And anything with a Moroccan twist.

Camryn Hellwarth
NYC Director and Chef Ambassador

Favorite Foods: Any dish served with an over easy egg on top. I’ll add a slice of avocado and a pinch of Maldon salt to make the perfect bite.

Roxanne Yang
Web Maintenance Intern

Favorite Foods: I love fruits! I’m constantly craving mangoes, watermelons, avocados… I’m also a huge fan of anything matcha!

Sarah Robertson
After School Program Director

Favorite FoodsMy favorite foods are the ones that makes me think! Foods with complex tasting profiles like chocolate (of course), apples, and dishes with lots of spices–where you can taste the soil they grow from and the history that created the food on your plate. The fresher, the better!

Kevin Longa
AmeriCorps VISTA Video and Media Manager

Favorite Foods: Anything that gets me out of my comfort zone – from live shrimp in Copenhagen to balut in the Philippines. Plus, you can never go wrong with Thai.

Katie Bem
Office Administrator and Marketing Coordinator

Favorite Foods: I am all about balance! As a baker, I will always argue that no meal is complete without a little bit of dessert – pie, anyone!? But, you can always find me chopping up whatever fresh produce is in season, from squash to corn, tomatoes to swiss chard, I just can’t get enough!

Cynthia Ho
Operations Director

Favorite Foods: I love going to farmer’s markets and eating with the seasons! Some of the produce I spend the whole year looking forward to enjoying are fava beans in the springtime, and heirloom tomatoes and stonefruit in the summertime. When travelling, I love to appreciate local fruits that are not grown here in the Bay Area. Some of my favorite tropical fruits include soursop, passionfruit, and guava! 

Katarina Krska

Favorite foods: From European pastries to dishes from my home country like kale and potato soup, fruit filled dumplings or freshly baked bread… the list of my favorites is very long. Good thing cooking and baking is a passion of mine. But if I had to pick just one food, then raspberries – straight from the garden. Or better yet – picked up while hiking in the mountains!
