Lisandra Yane Zuñiga
I have two children and my husband recently passed away. I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for more than 15 years, and I am very happy to be able to serve the children of my community so that they can grow up healthy and strong together with the Bountiful Foundation.
Bountiful's Community Coordinators
Community coordinators serve with Bountiful as volunteers. They organize other local volunteers and together conduct screenings, train families, distribute locally-purchased nutritional supplements, and follow up on infant development.
