“I am very pleased to welcome Carolyn to our organization. Her broad and deep experience in development will create enormous benefit to Food & Friends,” said Craig Shniderman, Executive Director of Food & Friends.
"It is an honor to be joining Food & Friends in such an important leadership role," said Carolyn. "I'm coming from an organization that provides loving homes for children, so the mission of Food & Friends resonates. It's about caring for people who are dealing with a life threatening illness, providing them with something as basic as nutritious meals, a personal connection, and maybe even a hug. I'm excited to be part of something so meaningful."
