Three colleagues who became friends and business partners devoted to changing the food system for the benefit of people and the environment.
Founder | CEO Matriark Foods is a social impact business— inspired by the thousands of children Anna has worked with including her 3 sons and first grandson— to scale access to healthy food for the benefit of people and the environment. Prior to Matriark Foods, Anna spent 25 years as a nonprofit leader successfully scaling programs and teams into dynamic, stable, and endowed organizations. Most recently, she was Executive Director for The Sylvia Center, a trail blazing food-education program that, under her leadership (and with Joyce and Jenn), collaborated with farmers, institutions, funders, and foundations committed to solving food insecurity through education and reimagined food systems. Together they expanded healthy eating and cooking programs in public housing community centers in all 5 NYC boroughs and all 6 school districts in Columbia County.
CFO | COO Joyce has over 20 years of experience developing business strategies and pursuing revenue growth opportunities in the banking, beverage and nonprofit industries and developing and implementing financial and operational infrastructure. She has worked at Citigroup, The Owl’s Brew, The Food Network, ABC Kitchen, Make-A-Wish and The Sylvia Center. Joyce holds degrees from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and The International Culinary Center. Joyce is also a Certified Sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers Americas.
