Tracy Mendez, RDN

“Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world.” These words from Nelson Mandela inspire Tracy Mendez as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Program Director, School Nutrition Education, at Dairy Council of California. In this role, she builds programming that empowers, educates and excites children to pursue lifelong healthy eating habits.

Tracy earned her Bachelor of Science in Nutrition at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, where she also minored in Spanish and learned to live the university’s Learn by Doing philosophy. Born and raised in the heart of the San Joaquin Valley, Tracy enjoys exploring the wonders of California-grown products and savors the stories and people behind the food.
