The Team and Partners

The Team

Tom Zeta

Tom is our new Nourish Coordinator. His professional background in the retail grocery world will be very useful, but as well, he has long desired to serve others in a deeper and more meaningful way. He is excited and honored to be a part of the Nourish team and to become more involved with the community. 


Tom is a decent cook and due to some recent changes in his health, has become much more aware of the importance of the healing potential of food. He looks forward to working with and getting to know Nourish members and local food suppliers in order to help build the bridge to good nutrition and a sustainable and healthy life for all.


Tom is also an artist (University of Evansville BFA class of 1990) and works in a variety of media, focusing primarily on ceramics and drawing these days.
