A message from President and CEO, Joel Sjostrom
After my first two months at the Food Bank, I can honestly say I could not be more impressed by the service and contributions that Larry Sly, the board, the leadership staff and the whole Food Bank team have been providing to our community and neighbors in need. I am so proud, honored and excited to have been selected to lead this great organization.
I invested the bulk of my first month focusing internally on meeting essentially every team member and gaining a better understanding of the core processes of the organization. Taking the time to attend department meetings helped me shed light on the strengths, challenges and even the culture of the organization today.
I’ve also had the pleasure of meeting many of our you–our passionate volunteers and supporters. It didn’t take me long to learn that it’s because of your heart and drive that we are able to help feed people every single day. I look forward to meeting many more of you in the coming months and accomplishing great things together.
