As one of the nation's top hunger relief organizations, Feeding Tampa Bay is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that serves a 10-county region and anticipates it will serve more than 85 million meals this year to families, children and seniors. The organization aims for a hunger-free Tampa Bay by 2025.
"Feeding Tampa Bay does tremendous work in the Tampa Bay community to lift up those who need a helping hand when it comes to food insecurity,"
Chatterton has volunteered with and supported Feeding Tampa Bay for years, including her current role serving on the Capital Campaign Committee for the nonprofit's new facility that's under construction. Her company, Bay Food Brokerage, has also long supported the organization through sponsorships, and food and monetary donations.
In her new role as a board member, Chatterton will serve an initial three-year term. Board members oversee the president and CEO, as well the business affairs and general direction of Feeding Tampa Bay. The board participates in developing strategic goals to help reach the organization's mission to provide assistance and connections to services to our region's food insecure.
"The Board of Directors at Feeding Tampa Bay are critical to our success," said Thomas Mantz, President and CEO of Feeding Tampa Bay. "Providing support, guidance and industry expertise, they assist us in building and delivering resources to our neighbors. Cammie's background in food will be invaluable as we seek to provide more food support in the future. Even better, Cammie's leadership as a businesswoman is unparalleled, and we are grateful to have her serve alongside our other terrific board members."
Chatterton will bring to this role leadership, food industry insights, and strategic thinking based on her 30 years as a business owner.
