I have had the pleasure of being on the Board of Directors for Golden Harvest Food Bank for the past 3 years, and will be serving as the Chairman of the Board this year. I take great joy in serving the community with this excellent organization. It’s commitment to accountability and good governance has earned it Charity Navigator’s highest rating of four stars for financial accountability. This is because 95 cents out of every dollar donated supports programs and services. For every dollar donated, Golden Harvest is able to distribute more than $8 worth of food through its network of more than 300 partner agencies, and last year they helped provide more than 17.1 million meals to the hungry. This is a great organization and I am proud to serve the hungry with them.

The Executive Director shows no respect to corporate donors and is insensitive to our needs. He preys on the fact that we are passionate about feeding hungry people, while he makes jokes about the way the poor lives. I believe the organization is important to the people in our community, so I donate anyway.
