Wendy Reinhardt Kapsak

CEO, Produce for Better Health
“What provides more health and vibrant beauty than fresh fruit and vegetables? Perhaps my background as a registered dietitian has given me more appreciation than the average person. Throughout my career, I have had the pleasure of promoting produce consumption literally from seed to supermarket to sauté pan. As a mom of three as well as the President and CEO of the Produce for Better Health Foundation, I am continuously thankful that this path has led me to the noble calling of sharing the deliciousness, joy, and sheer versatility of eating fruits and vegetables every day—whether fresh, frozen, canned, dried, or 100% juice.”
“As a young child, my grandmother had a garden in our backyard and while she was cooking, she would ask me to go pick jalapenos, tomatoes, and squash. That garden made a big impression on me and my life. I believe that is where my passion for food and fellowship developed. On Sundays our family would gather at my grandparents’ home to eat and laugh. I believe that no matter what happens in life there is no better feeling than gathering around the dinner table with your family and friends.”
