The Alliance’s Board of Directors includes the chief operating officers of the six Feeding America food banks, members from the public and private business sectors, policymakers and advocates, as well as direct relief providers. Each Board member serves on at least one committee, and the committees reflect our expanded role in education, public awareness, advocacy, policy, food sourcing and distribution. Thanks to the broad experience of our Board members and their willingness to take a proactive role in strategic planning across many areas effecting hunger, the Alliance is becoming the “go-to” authority on hunger issues in Arkansas.
