David Hott, Incumbent, Member since 2019
With an educational background in Collaborative Health and Human Services from the University of California Monterey Bay, I bring extensive work experience in food recovery and corporate leadership. As a certified Practitioner in Zero Waste Principles and Practices, I offer an energetic viewpoint that can enhance collaboration efforts toward Zero Waste. I began my journey into reducing GHG by being part of the beginnings of, which was created by my close friend Doctor Nancy Fishman the founder of Forgotten Harvest.
I serve as the Director of Operations at Loaves and Fishes in Silicon Valley, the home of the A La Carte Program of Loaves & Fishes. I hold a Board Position on the Northern California Recycling Association (NCRA) and am certified as a Practitioner in Zero Waste Principles and Practices from SWANA. A San Francisco Bay area native, David spends his free time as a wilderness guide in the backcountry of Yosemite.
My entry into the efforts toward Zero Waste began with a new chapter in my professional development. The responsibility I have in becoming a larger part of the solutions for climate change influences my decision to become an active member of NCRA. I would be humbled and extremely honored to become a member of the Board of Directors of this wonderful organization.
