This Month’s Space Guests
Vanessa Ballesteros, CEO & Founder at Sunbox
Vanessa Ballesteros is the founder and CEO of Sunbox, a tech-enabled marketplace for healthy food that makes it easy and affordable to eat healthy at work through smart, self-service kiosks stocked with fresh, local food.
Prior to starting Sunbox, Vanessa had previously spent her career as a globetrotting Emmy Award winning TV producer on critically-acclaimed adventure shows such as Survivor and The Amazing Race.
Sunbox was an idea originally inspired by Vanessa’s days traveling for work and burning the midnight oil at the office. While she was making an effort to eat healthy, the workplace made doing so difficult.
Passionate about integrated health and food justice, Vanessa believes in the power of food as medicine and that healthy food should be easily accessible to everyone. Her company aims to democratize access to eating healthy, partners with local nonprofits to donate to youth and families in need and also works with community organizations to bring food equity and access to healthy food to underserved neighborhoods.
