Cambridge Self-Help Food Bank (CSHFB) is pleased to announce the recent hiring of the new Executive Director- Krista Cressman, effective June 25th, 2020.
Cressman joins the CSHFB after multiple years of work in the non-profit industry; including leadership roles at Sustainable Waterloo Region and J. Steckle Heritage Homestead.
“As our organization navigates the various challenges that 2020 has presented not only to our community as a whole, but specifically to those most vulnerable amongst us, I feel very confident and excited to have Krista join our team in the role of Executive Director,” said Board Chair, Kristen Danson. “There is an increased demand in our community for support; the CSHFB continues our work to provide nutritious food to those in need. Krista’s experience in this Region, and in the not-for-profit sector will allow our organization to continue to grow and develop as the community’s needs evolve.”
“My favourite quote is one by Mahatma Ghandi, ‘the true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members’. It is this belief, that guides my desire to help create a kinder and more responsive community. My passion for education, advocacy and food literacy in my past roles has lead me to this amazing opportunity to support the advocacy and community building efforts of the CSHFB. I look forward to working with the many partners within Cambridge, and welcome those interested in supporting or participating in our efforts to reach out. Kcressman@cambridgefoodbank.on.ca”
The CSHFB is very excited about the vast experience Cressman brings to our organization. From everyone on the Board, staff and volunteers we are very happy to welcome her to our team!
