Araceli Pancheco, Director

I'm Araceli Pacheco, I joined the GFM Board in 2015. I was attracted by the idea of promoting the Market to the Hispanic/Latino population in the area. Since 2016 I've been helping in the organization of the Salsa Festival and we have seen a good response from vendors, participants, and customers. I feel this is a great opportunity to continue building healthy relationships in the Community.

Ally Mast is new to the board.  Professionally, she is a registered dietitian nutritionist, passionate about healthy eating, sustainable nutrition, and helping individuals unlock food's potential.  Ally hopes to use her time serving on the board to help make fresh local food more accessible to all in the Goshen community by expanding the reach of our Share the Bounty Program.
