Nils grew up in Martinez and attended high school in Oakland, before moving down to Santa Barbara to attend university at UCSB. He has worked in neuroscience and medical research in the years since graduating.
Nils helps Food Shift in the kitchen, and also makes trips into San Francisco to pick up fresh produce from our partner, Imperfect. Nils became fascinated with the connection between food and health after seeing the benefits for himself with a positive change in his diet. Nils is passionate about volunteering with Food Shift because he sees it as a great way to provide healthy, nutritious food to those who might otherwise have a hard time getting it.
