The Atlanta Community Food Bank recently announced two new leaders to their Executive Leadership Team. The nonprofit that works to end hunger in 29 metro Atlanta and North Georgia counties named Sharay Erskine as Chief Information Officer and Kenneth Hill as Chief Supply Chain Officer.
Their appointments are part of the Food Bank’s new strategic plan that focuses on bringing the organization past the impacts of the global pandemic. Erskine and Hill will report directly to President and CEO Kyle Waide.
“As we look to the future of the organization, particularly post-pandemic, we determined that two areas of expertise were immediately critical to resourcing our mission, supply chain operations and information technology, ” said Waide. “We are pleased to announce that we have completed our extensive search to bring two new leaders into the Food Bank. Sharay and Kenny bring experience, fresh perspectives, and new capabilities to their respective roles and will be integral as we look to grow our programs and services to meet the increased demands of need.”
Erskine will be responsible for leading the strategic investment in new systems that will enable the Food Bank to enhance their client service model, measure and report on their impact, and drive greater efficiency in all aspects of their operations. Hill will lead all aspects of food sourcing, warehouse and inventory management, and delivery operations.
Since 2020, the City of South Fulton has partnered with the Atlanta Community Food Bank to distribute more than 100,000 pounds of food at multiple sites throughout the area, including Welcome All Park and Cliftondale Church. The food distribution events have helped to meet the needs of local families impacted by COVID-19, as well as those feeling the pinch of inflation.
“The country is facing the worst inflation in decades,” said South Fulton District 4 Councilmember Jaceey Sebastian. “With the decline in the value of the grocery dollar, the high price of gas and other services, our city is continuing its effort to help citizens keep food on the table.”
