MFB welcomes two new national board members
Have you ever wondered what a nonprofit board does? Like all nonprofits, Midwest Food Bank is governed by a board of Directors. These twelve volunteers provide strategic and financial oversight for the organization. Additionally, each of the twelve MFB locations has an advisory board. While the employees lead the daily operations, the board plays a key role in ensuring the mission, vision, and values are maintained with integrity. Each national board member serves a term of four years with the opportunity to hold up to three terms.
In January, Midwest Food Bank welcomed two new members to the National Board of Directors, Matt Kees and Arthur Neal.
Matt is the Vice President and Group Financial Officer - Construction Industries at Caterpillar, Inc. He is a champion for work/life balance and prioritization of endeavors that matter (like MFB). Matt and his wife, Jennifer, live in Canton, IL.
"It is an honor and a blessing to be elected as a Board member of MFB," says Matt. "MFB's mission is so vital to bringing comfort and support to people in need through the love of Christ."
Arthur is the Deputy Administrator of the Federal Grain Inspection Service in the USDA. He is from a Louisiana farming family and currently lives in Upper Marlboro, MD, with his wife, Angelia. Arthur has a strong alignment with the MFB mission of food and faith.
"I look forward to serving on the board in the hope that I can add value to the impressive work and rich ministry MFB has already cultivated," says Arthur.
"I am pleased to have Matt and Arthur join the National Board," says Eric Hodel, CEO of Midwest Food Bank. "They expand the talent, experience, and networks within the board."
