Dear Food Bank friends and family,

I am delighted to announce the selection of Nancy Frusetta Moore as our new Executive Director. Our Board of Directors conducted an extensive search, and we are very pleased that a person with Nancy’s non-profit and business experience will be joining us to lead the Community Food Bank of San Benito. Nancy will begin her role on August 11th.

Nancy succeeds former Food Bank CEO Maria Lynn Thomas. Maria has dedicated the last 6 + years of her career to building dignity for our neighbors in need. We are so grateful for her dedication and service. The Food Bank has a great foundation with a strong, dedicated staff and board that is bridging the gap until Nancy’s start date. Nancy will help us build on that foundation and expand the Food Bank’s impact in the future.

A native with deep roots in this community, Nancy brings decades of leadership experience in which she has demonstrated a record of success, vision, collaboration, and developing strong teams both in the private sector and the non-profit world. Most recently, Nancy worked as the Executive Director for Sky’s the Limit Fund based in the Bay Area.

In partnership with our dedicated board, staff, and volunteers, we are confident Nancy will be a great leader at the Food Bank. We’re thrilled to welcome Nancy to the community and I hope you will join me in making her feel at home here. You will have the opportunity to meet her very soon — and she is excited to meet you!

Finally, the Board extends its deep appreciation to the staff for their continued dedication and hard work during this transition. Thank you to the executive search committee and board members for their participation in this process and decision making. We look forward to many more years serving San Benito County.

Keith Schwehr
Board Chair
