Faces of Food Bank: Brandy

Brandy works in our Nutrition Network and did a remarkable job coordinating last summer’s food program for kids. Working with a very tight deadline, she  completed all the paperwork, staff and volunteer training, set-up, distribution and monitoring to get 25 additional summer food sites up and running. Her efforts to help fill more hungry tummies were deservedly recognized by the Colorado Department of Education who nominated Brandy for the White House Champion of Change Award. Brand has been very modest about this nomination.

“Even though it was a lot of work to get the additional sites set up, it was worth it,” says Brandy.  “I have three kids and can’t imagine them without a meal. I’m just doing my job. It’s all about opening more meal sites so more kids can eat.”

Brandy asked a little girl at one of the sites what she liked best about her lunch.  The little girl told her she liked the milk because “we don’t have milk at home.”   Stories like this keep Brandy and her team motivated.

Brandy was recently promoted to Distribution Supervisor for all Nutrition Network programs.  She has a lot of new tasks on her plate, but we’re sure she can handle it. Congratulations Brandy, on this outstanding nomination and your new position. We appreciate you!
