August has been a month of growth for CfH! We are excited to announce that seven diverse and talented individuals have joined CfH’s board and staff.
Our new board members include: Maya, an alum who organized the March for our Lives in Miami, Nikki, a published author, finance expert and LGBTQ advocate in Philadelphia, Andy, a professional leadership coach and long-time friend of CfH from Chicago, Alison, an alumna and campus administrator who is leading efforts to support food insecure students in Memphis, and our two student board members Emily, leader at Michigan and Kimmy, leader at at MIT.
We also welcomed new staff member, Miriam Lipschutz, who recently joined our team as our Program Manager. Miriam founded our chapter at Vermont and spent the last year with Repair the World in NYC supporting food justice charities. Miriam joins us as we say “see you soon” to our wonderful Director of Campus Programs, Talia Berday-Sacks, who is off to the Big Apple for her next adventure. We wish her luck and thank her for her commitment and leadership, specifically on the Campus Hunger Project.
We also share our gratitude to several board members who are finishing their board terms: Annie Lumerman, Eli Winkelman, Michael Rosefeldt and our student representative, Rachel Quinn. Thank you for helping us #bakeadifference with your energy, leadership and passion for our work.
The CfH board is not only a governing board, but also a hands-on leadership development experience for young adults interested in lay leadership. Interested in serving on a board committee? We have 3 standing committees that accept new members year round. (Development, Finance and Governance). We also have temporary committees (like the 2017 Young Funders Committee) that are offered when projects arise. Contact Carly at [email protected] for more information.
