Jonathan Gerescher

Program Coordinator
Brighter Bites Houston

Jonathan Gerescher is a program coordinator for Brighter Bites. He grew up in the Houston area and received his undergraduate degree in hotel & restaurant management from the University of Houston’s Hilton College. During his time there, Jonathan worked for Discovery Green Conservancy, where he developed a passion for the nonprofit sector and serving the community. After graduation, Jonathan began working for a food service management company in local schools. There, he further developed his interest in helping serve children through nutrition and education.

Jonathan believes that when children have access to fresh produce, they can develop healthy habits that will last throughout their lives. An avid soccer player in his youth, he also understands the importance of pairing healthy eating habits with an active lifestyle. He wants to help pass that along to future generations.

In his free time, Jonathon enjoys exploring the diverse Houston restaurant scene. When he’s not trying new cuisines, you’ll probably find him cheering for the Astros or kicking a soccer ball around with friends.
