How often in life does one get to go home again and to take everything you’ve learned and know to help people and a community that you still care deeply about? My heart has always been in the North Country and this was an opportunity I could not turn down!
While I’m excited about this, as you can imagine, I do leave Foodshare and the Hartford region with mixed feelings! I will miss so many people in this community tremendously.
But Foodshare is strong, with a great Board of Directors and a committed, hard-working staff and volunteer force, and I know they will carry on the mission and do it well.
I will do my best to respond to all of those messages over the coming weeks and I know that the team here is working on some kind of going away event, so I hope I will see many of you then, if not before!
Thank you for all you have done to support Foodshare's mission to end hunger in the region and for all your support of my efforts here in the Hartford area and for my next steps on life's journey!
