Expanding the Diversity of Board Expertise, BAN Nurtures Their Success! Fighting Food Insecurity and Food Waste
April 24, 2017 (North Miami, FL) – BAN Productions, a nonprofit organization founded in 2012 fighting food insecurity and food waste, is proud to announce two new members on their Board of Directors.

BAN Productions maintains nine leaders in the fields of food management, culinary arts, medicine and nutrition, and community engagement on its Board of Directors for two-year terms. The board members join Founder and Board President, John Rossetti, to help him fulfill his vision for fighting hunger in South Florida by connecting communities in need with readily available sources of fresh ingredients, nutrition education and recipe training.
BAN, which stands for Balanced and Nutritious, leverages its relationships with major food distributors and suppliers in Florida that have large, regular supplies of surplus food. Much of the available food supplies are fresh ingredients that cannot be frozen or stored for future use. BAN takes those fresh ingredients and teaches people how to prepare a healthy, nutritious and balanced meal using recipes inspired by Rossetti’s late partner, Chef David Holtquist.
“I am thrilled to have brought together such an inspirational group of leaders who share my vision for giving back to the community,” said John Rossetti, who outside of BAN Productions is an award-winning chef and owner of 2Taste Catering. “Together I know they can help me reach out to people living in food deserts and teach them how to incorporate even the most unfamiliar fresh ingredients into family meals.”
“Although BAN Productions began as a shared vision with David to give back to our community and create a lasting legacy, I will need help implementing our vision,” said Rossetti. “BAN’s Board of Directors is an integral part of our long-term success.”
