Meet the Team
A note from the founder, Jenny Westerkamp:
In 2008 when I was a senior in college, I started a food bank club on campus to increase the awareness of hunger and food insecurity and support the local food bank. This experience gave me leadership skills and impacted me tremendously as a dietitian. I want to empower future dietitians to do the same. Together, we can create something really powerful across the country!

University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
My name is Riley Maloney and I will be a senior this year at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. I have a depth of experience working with food insecure populations, including volunteering with local organizations from my hometown such as Food Fight for Hunger and Hope and Friendship Ministries, and doing outreach work for the central Illinois chapter of No Kid Hungry.
Additionally, I wanted to take on this role to help further eradicate hunger at both the local and national level; homelessness and hunger is prevalent issue in the Urbana-Champaign area and that is something I really want to change.
In my free time, I participate in the Cross Country Club on campus, enjoy playing the guitar, and spending quality time with my wonderful friends and family (who put up with all my dietetics-related rants!).
I have been an active member of organizations like Food for Free, Fresh Truck and Community Servings for 2 years now. I also have been serving as a country rep for IAAND for 4 years now, and one of my targets has been becoming up do date on trends of global hunger and sustainability.
For fun, I enjoy collaborating with local artists and cooking.
University of Houston
My experience with food insecurity includes volunteering for the Houston Food Bank through senior box distributions and special events, such as the Mayor's Back To School Event. In addition, I interned for a Third Ward Wellness Research Study on childhood obesity prevention for low socioeconomic populations, in which we created and piloted two wellness intervention programs for children.
Outside of school and volunteering, I like to spend time outdoors, whether it’s hiking, kayaking, or site seeing.
College of Saint Elizabeth
My name is Kaysha Quiles, I am currently a student at The College of Saint Elizabeth and will be graduating in May 2021!
I've volunteered at my local food pantry helping organize shelves, work the farmers market, and delivering groceries to those in need.
If I'm not at school or at work, you can find me hiking some of the beautiful trails by my house!
My name is Jennifer Ingolia and I am a first-year graduate student at Clemson University in Clemson, SC. I will graduate in the spring of 2021 with my master’s in food science.
I’ve worked with a few non-profit organizations to help reduce hunger and food insecurity including shelters, food pantries, and even a pay-what-you-can restaurant.
In my free time, I enjoy reading, exercising, and hiking.
New York University
Hi, my name is Morgan Elmore, and I am a junior at New York University. I am majoring in Nutrition & Dietetics, with hopes of becoming a registered dietitian.
I’ve worked closely with food insecure populations through my summer volunteering experiences. Each summer, I volunteer at Camp ENERGY, a week-long summer camp for underprivileged children who are overweight, obese, or at risk for becoming so. We teach them healthy eating and exercise habits, in hopes that they can take those habits home and apply them to their day to day life. Additionally, I volunteered at my local food bank this summer, where I was able to work at their mobile farmer’s market which provides produce at a lower price, as well as work on the farm where the produce is grown, and the kitchen where produce is processed.
In my spare time, I love to workout! I work at SoulCycle, and spend most of my time either working there with my friends or working out there!
Social Media Manager
University of Wisconsin Madison
My name is Riley Collins and I am an undergraduate student at the University of Wisconsin studying dietetics and I plan to graduate in the spring of 2021!
Food insecurity hits close to home as I’m from a very rural community where hunger due to poverty is a big issue. I’m excited to be a part of an organization targeting a problem I can relate to!
For fun, I love to grab coffee and wander around farmers markets and shops!
