About halfway through January. The dust has settled from the holiday season, and I was able to catch up with our Programs department. You know the team…
Richard Gordon, SNAP Outreach Coordinator
Hope Pascoe, Child Hunger Corp Member (she’s new… you’ll get to know her)
Megan Ellis, Youth Programs Coordinator
Eddie Oliver, Programs Manager
I tracked them down because I’m VERY interested in their New Year Resolutions for the programs that they oversee. Here’s what they had to say:
In 2015, I want to increase families food budgets by providing local suppers for youth 5 nights a week!
– Hope Pascoe
Enhance and expand our ability to connect with more individuals in need of SNAP application assistance.
– Richard Gordon
Focus on building new, and nurturing old, partnerships to help feed more kids… and to clean out my inbox.
– Megan Ellis
Expand and build on community partnerships that will help us ensure no child goes hungry while they are out of school.
– Eddie Oliver
What do you think? We have a pretty ambitious and passionate group of programs people!
Do you have any questions for them about our BackSacks: Weekend Food for Kids Program, School-Based Pantry Program, Summer Meals for Kids Program, or any others?
Leave them in the comments below, and we will be sure to get them answered.
