Cheryl Kollin, MBA in sustainability, is Principal of Full Plate Ventures, LLC. Full Plate Ventures consults with farm and food businesses to enhance their profitability while serving their social mission in nurturing the land, growing our food, producing our meals and strengthening our local economy. Full Plate Ventures launched Farm to Freezer to preserve local food to nourish those in need. Cheryl serves as Program Manager for Community Food Rescue.

Our team is joined by five partner organizations who will help us recruit food donors, recipient organizations, and volunteer food runners in our early stages of building Community Food Rescue.
