VP of Impact
Becca Dittrich is the VP of Impact at Chobani, where she leads the company’s commitment to doing well by doing good. This includes overseeing investments to strengthen community wellness in the communities where Chobani operates, and initiatives to fight food insecurity – especially child hunger. She also manages relationships with critical partners and stakeholders to advance Chobani’s mission of better food for more people and its focus on the employment of refugees.
Becca started her career working with a ShopRite Supermarkets grocer who relied upon financing incentives, grassroots community engagement, and innovative store policies to successfully operate grocery stores in what had historically been food deserts in Greater Philadelphia. She served as Interim Associate Director at the nonprofit Uplift Solutions, which worked with other grocers interested in following the same model. Inspired by the power of business to alter the course of a community’s health outcomes, she moved to DC to receive her JD at Georgetown Law and her Master of Public Health (MPH) at Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health. There, she focused on health policy solutions at the intersection of legal and regulatory change, social innovation, and private-public partnership. Before coming to Chobani, she practiced healthcare regulatory law at Reed Smith where she counseled healthcare companies on developing innovative operating models against the backdrop of stale regulation, and managed clients’ response to government investigation.
Becca brings her public health perspective to Chobani’s Impact team, because she believes that if all businesses focused on the wellness of their employees and their communities as Chobani does, then we could transform the well-being of the world.
