I think it is shocking that the CEO receives $380K + fringe benefits. She is highlighted every year on Chanel 5 as an overly paid CEO.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I used it when I was in Social Services but didn't realize the huge salary the CEO was getting for feeding the poor.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Hire a new CEO at a respectable but lower salary. This one is milking the poor. It operates well; however, could do just as well with someone who was more committed to the poor than their own salary and fringe benefits.
