Karen Grata is from New Castle, PA (last of 9 children!) and made San Clemente her home in 1986. She joined the Food Connection in 2017 for a new experience…volunteering! She has been a self-employed insurance broker for the past 40 years and occupies her time with martial arts, cooking, her spouse, Dave and Yorkie Terriers (4th. one pictured, Squeek). My goal is to waste no food!  Our challenge is to get it to the “end-user” and feed San Clemente! The relationships we’ve built together are irreplaceable and FUN happens at the pantry! Bring your positive energy and sense of humor!
