Dana has been a professional photographer since 1998 and saw the need for food recovery in her industry. In 2014, she co-founded an initiative to educate event professionals about the need for donating unused food, and the policies that support doing so. After learning that lack of awareness & transportation were among the top bottlenecks, she joined the Rescuing Leftover Cuisine team in 2017 to help make food donation a Best Practice for businesses in order to prevent wasted food, provide for people and preserve the environment.
