Ricardo Ortiz

Participant Engagement and Program Coordinator

As Participant Engagement and Program Coordinator, Ricardo uses his 25+ years of customer service experience to support shoppers participating in the Double Up Food Bucks program.

For the past 10 years, Ricardo honed his organizational skills at Zingerman’s in Ann Arbor, where his work in the purchasing department helped him develop close working relationships with small business owners and farmers and help build community among these groups.

Ricardo lives in Ann Arbor with his wife and hound and, when not making music for podcasts, websites, and his two bands, enjoys the whimsy of his curious pup.
