Jen Franco

Production Chef

The kitchen has always been a place of joy for Jen, who grew up spending time there with her grandmother, feeding her giant family. Her passion for nourishing others ultimately led her to leave her role at a clean water advocacy nonprofit and journey to the Bay Area to become a Certified Natural Chef at Bauman College. Then came eight fulfilling years of feeding people wholesome meals as an executive chef, teaching holistic cooking and nutrition, and creating wellness programs for professional communities. At Food Shift, Jen is glad to be working with the apprentices in the culinary training program, creating delicious meals while keeping food out of the waste stream and strengthening our local community.
