Board of Directors
Maureen Desmond, Chair
VP, Resource Development, Cal Ripkin Sr. Foundation
“I am a board member for the National Foundation to End Senior Hunger (NFESH) because this is a critical issue in our country. This just shouldn’t be. I want to find ways to get the word out, provide funding for research to help end this issue, and most importantly, allow seniors good food and nutrition to sustain them from early life to the end of life. That is the only acceptable solution.”
Howard Hogan, Secretary Treasurer
Partner, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP
“Those of us who benefit from this country’s blessings owe it to those who came before us to make sure that they do not go hungry.”
Partner, Barton LLP
“The reality of the facts regarding senior hunger in this country should provide all of the motivation we need to fulfill our obligation to support our seniors. These are our parents, our mentors, our family and our friends. In a time when our nation has developed a wellness focus, including healthy dietary guidelines, our collective conscience must not allow us to leave our seniors behind. Fostering the research necessary to properly frame the issue of senior hunger is clearly the first step in developing and implementing a workable solution. I am excited to be associated with the National Foundation to End Senior Hunger in an effort to work toward this goal.”
Chief Creative Officer and Owner, Department of Creative
“It is unacceptable, that in this day and age, our greatest generation is faced with food insecurity and hunger. I am honored to help the National Foundation to End Senior Hunger in its efforts to make a difference for so many lives in our nation.”
Managing Director, Partner, HighTower Advisors
“With all of the prosperity in this country no one in the golden age of their life should go hungry. Once we understand the why, we can then put the resources in place to solve senior hunger. In joining NFESH I hope to be able to fix this critical issue across the entire country.”
