Why Alexandra serves on the board
I’m committed to bridging gaps and breaking any barriers that contribute to the inequities we see in our society. Hunger and access to safe and healthy food continues to be such an unfair obstacle for so many. The Greater Food Depository as an institution has a well-deserved name in addressing hunger for the Chicagoland region.
I am thrilled to be a part of an organization that can help provide food security, knowledge, and support to the community and surrounding community organizations.
