Board Members

Our executive and advisory board members are comprised of concerned friends, students, retirees, and working professionals from various industries around the Denver Metro area. All of them are dedicated to ending childhood hunger via our approach. Each member offers their time and monetary donations to cover all miscellaneous operating expenses that may occur. Their generosity allows 100% of our public donations to go directly to buying food for our kids. Our executive board meets monthly and our advisory board meets quarterly. Once a year, we have an all-day strategic executive planning session to set the course for the following year.
