Zhonette M. Brown, a shareholder at the law firm of Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, was recently appointed to the Board of Directors at the Food Bank of the Rockies. As a board member, Brown will provide strategic direction to the organization and help with fundraising efforts. Brown, who grew up on a farm, says that she was drawn to the organization as it will allow her to help address hunger in a meaningful way.
Originally founded in 1978 as the Colorado Food Clearing House, the Food Bank of the Rockies (FBR) has grown from distributing food supplies to one agency to more than 1,100 hunger-relief programs throughout Northern Colorado and Wyoming. FBR serves an area where nearly 400,000 people live in poverty and struggle to meet their basic food needs. Last year, FBR distributed 35.7 million pounds of food—76,000 meals each day—to children, seniors, and families in need. The organization operates with a staff of more than sixty and more than 6,000 volunteers.
Thank you, Ms. Brown, for your dedication to the Food Bank of the Rockies and your commitment to our community.
