About Caity

Local Food Outreach and Events Coordinator
FOR LOCAL FIRST ARIZONA

Caity grew up in San Diego, California but considers Arizona her home. She is passionate about local foods and building strong, inclusive communities. Caity feels that the best way to do this is by empowering local businesses.

Hometown: Tucson, Arizona

What I Love Most About Arizona:
The diverse landscape. It’s a common misconception that Arizona is just deserts and shopping malls. The reality is that this state is made up of forests, rivers, canyons and even vibrant green deserts.

Favorite Book:
Chasing Redbird by Sharon Creech. It was the first book I read growing up that I finished in a matter of days. I’m an avid reader and that book was by gateway drug.

Favorite Local Business:
Tanias ‘33’. I love this restaurant. They have tons of vegan and vegetarian options and provide authentic sonoran cuisine!

Passions:
My community. I’m proud of where I live and I want others to feel the same.
