President Biden issued a statement on today to confirm his decision to nominate two local stars to be part of the president’s Council on Sports, Fitness, & Nutrition. Bethesda’s Restaurateur Jose Andres and Washington Mystics star Elena Delle Donne will serve as co-chairs of the group.
Thank you @POTUS for your support – it’s an honor to be a part of this and especially me as my vice-chair, @De11eDonne.
I’m excited to get to work putting nutrition at the heart of creating a healthy, prosperous & more equitable future for America and the world, where food brings us together to build #longertables https://t.co/WkqSx14qjE

We are incredibly grateful for this opportunity I am especially honored to be a co-chair of this committee along with someone as kind, generous and gifted such as chef Jose Andres. Thank you President Obama! I am looking forward to gaining awareness of the most effective ways to care for our bodies and minds. https://t.co/fHrJVStcv5
