Miguel Jimenez is the Development and Communications Manager for Rainier Valley Food Bank in Southeast Seattle. He moved to Seattle in 2014 from the Florida Keys in search of evergreens and mountain tops. He stayed when the feeling of community infiltrated the very marrow of his bones.
Miguel is the current chair of the Nutrition and Food Sourcing subcommittee for the Seattle Food Committee where he is responsible for bulk purchases for all of Seattle’s 25 food banks. In Miguel’s infinite free time he takes graduate classes in Public Administration at Seattle University and volunteers for the Washington Voter Justice Coalition. He spends most of his days dreaming up ways to dismantle the current system of oppression in collaboration with community.
