A Note from the FRP Chair

18-19_FRPBoard
2018-2019 Food Rescue Partnership Board. From left to right: Pete Vogel, Larry Linnenbrink, Christina McDonough, Kristin Bogdonas.

The Food Rescue Partnership begins the fiscal year 2019 with a newly-elected Board that includes some familiar faces and some new faces.

Newly elected in their positions are Kristin Bogdonas – Secretary, and Larry Linnenbrink – Treasurer. Meanwhile, former Secretary Christina McDonough will now assume the Vice-Chair duties while Pete Vogel remains Chair.

Kristin and Larry are well qualified to assume their new duties. We are confident the skills they have demonstrated as stakeholders will serve them well in these new Board positions. Christina has demonstrated a level of commitment and quality since the very beginning of the FRP, which came to be in large part due to her efforts as the Scott County Health Department’s Community Transformation Consultant. There is no doubt she will continue and further this legacy as Vice-Chair.

Our outgoing Board members did a fantastic job and the FRP is stronger as a result of their efforts and leadership. We thank our outgoing Vice-Chair Liz Hogan Wells for all the fine work, energy, and creativity she poured into the FRP, and wish her all the best as she pursues new opportunities in Florida. Similarly, we thank outgoing Treasurer Mike Miller for his foundational work with the FRP in providing valuable insight and leadership as well as positioning River Bend Foodbank to serve as our fiscal agent. Mike will continue as a valued stakeholder and remains a clear voice for ending hunger in our community. The Food Rescue Partnership enters this new term stronger and more vital than ever.

– Pete Vogel, Food Rescue Partnership Chair
