FOOD ACCESS COORDINATOR, FOOD ACCESS TEAM
Yamayka is originally from Laredo, TX, a small city located just along the U.S-Mexico Border. She graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in May 2021, where she completed her B.A. in Sustainability Studies. It was through her studies that she was able to learn about the different barriers and inequities that exist within our current food system. It was this knowledge that first sparked her interest in food accessibility, regenerative farming, and food sustainability. After graduation, she wanted to focus her efforts towards improving Austin’s local food system and acquire first-hand experience with farming.
