Trustee, Bite Back

Tasha Mhakayakora is a passionate campaigner committed to eradicating food poverty among children and young people. As the founding co-chair of the youth board and trustee at Bite Back 2030, a dynamic youth activist movement challenging injustices in the food industry, Tasha has spearheaded numerous national campaigns.
