GSFB’s Network Advisory Council

Beginning in January 2017, a group of partner agency leaders joined forces with Good Shepherd Food Bank to form the Network Advisory Council. This group meets quarterly to provide support and feedback to GSFB on topics that may include product purchasing, outreach activities, recommendations for best practices, training and education opportunities, and innovative strategies for strengthening the charitable food network.

This group was chosen based on partner agency expressed interest and also on providing a balanced representation of the partner network, based on type of program, size of agency, region, and active participation with GSFB.

Current Network Advisory Council members are:
Betty Morrell, Faith Food Pantry, Gardiner
Charlene Buzza, GIFT (Grace Interfaith Food Cupboard), Presque Isle
David Dawson, Greater Waterville Area Food Bank, Waterville
Don Morrison, Wayside Food Programs, Portland
Karen King, Dover-Foxcroft Area Food Cupboard, Dover-Foxcroft
Katie Brown, Locker Project, Portland
Lee Upton, High Street Congregational Church Food Pantry in Auburn
Leiza Hiltz Scerbo, Care and Share Food Closet, Farmington
Patti Wright, Northport Food Pantry, Northport
Rich Norman, St. Bernard’s Soup Kitchen, Rockland
Rob Crone, Eastern Area Agency on Aging, Bangor
Sue Hahn, Hampden Neighborhood Food Cupboard, Hampden
Tanya Bormet, No Greater Love Food Pantry, Searsmont
Wendy Harrington, Maine Sea Coast Mission, Cherryfield
Kathy Helming, GSFB VP of Community Partnerships, staff liaison to the committee

Good Shepherd Food Bank wishes to thank the members of our inaugural Network Advisory Committee for their commitment to this group and to ending hunger in Maine. Be on the lookout in future issues of Partner News for updates from the Network Advisory Committee about their work.
