PUSD congratulates Erin Meza on her promotion to Director of Food and Nutrition Services, following the recent retirement of Elizabeth Powell. Ms. Meza is passionate about child nutrition and aims to connect with students through their taste buds.
A professionally trained chef, she completed part of her training in Florence, Italy, mastering the art of Italian cuisine as a chef at Alle Murate restaurant. Ms. Meza earned a business degree at the University of La Verne and discovered her love for child nutrition while working as a cafeteria manager in the L.A. Unified School District. There she was a training specialist, teaching staff about cooking, food safety, and nutrition regulations.
For the last eight years, Ms. Meza has worked as the food service operations supervisor at PUSD. She says she’s ecstatic to lead the department that brings PUSD children healthy, enjoyable meals.
