Daysi Sweaney


Director of Healthy Food Incentives, Nourish Colorado

I believe we are change makers committed to reshaping the food system and its inequities, especially for those with economic disadvantages, immigrants, Black, Indigenous, and people of color. By engaging with our community and advocating for policy changes I hope to rebalance the system and make it better.

Meet Daysi

Daysi is an immigrant from Peru who calls Colorado, her home. She has dedicated her career to work for her community and improve equitable access to food and resources for those who are underserved and marginalized. She believes  everyone should have access to resources and nutritious food, no matter their race, social, economic or legal status. Daysi is committed to contribute to positive changes, reduce access barriers and elevate the voices of everyone she serves. She is grateful to be part of this cohort and excited to be part of their mission.

On her free time, she like to spend time with her family, explore the outdoors and be her kid’s chauffeur, chef, teacher, entertainer, etc.
