When Weija is not at her desk or at an MPX distribution, she enjoys food, maybe more so than most, she loves reading about it, watching movies and shows about it, talking about it, making it, eating it.\u00a0 Be sure to say hi and share your favorite food or recipe with her when you see her! \tAlex Veague has been at Northern Illinois Food Bank since May 2019 as the My Pantry Express Senior Program Coordinator.\u00a0 Although she oversees many of the operational and website needs of the program, she will create graphs and charts just as soon as she will lend a hand in the warehouse. When she\u2019s not running around with My Pantry Express, Alex is usually at home with her dog or out and about looking for her next favorite book. As a neuroscientist, though, watch out! If you catch her reading a science journal, she just might talk your ear off about the latest and greatest in neuroscience and psychobiology. \tRachel Lechuga is our My Pantry Express Team Program Coordinator, focusing on customer service and data. She has worked as an organic vegetable farmer around Northern Illinois and Chicago the last few years and found a wonderful opportunity for growth at the Food Bank.

Her roots run deep in hobbies like: advocating for local food, advocating for food justice, gardening, tending to her plants, travelling, staying active, cooking, and being outside at any given moment.
