Feed American First Appoints New Board Members



Feed America First announces the appointment of four new members to its board of directors, including Sharon Brawner, John Francis, Jason Martin, and Andy Vaughn. “We are delighted to welcome these new members to our board. Each of them brings not only a passion for caring about people, but also fresh perspectives to help guide Feed America First into the next chapter of our story. Their enthusiasm, energy, experience and thoughtfulness will be very important to continuing our mission and we look forward to having them as members of the Feed America First family,” said Dave Speer, Board President. Board members at Feed America First serve 3-year terms, and are responsible for donating their “time, talent, and treasure” to the organization – including but not limited to volunteering, providing expertise and oversight, donating, and soliciting new support for the organization.

Andy Vaughn, fi nancial advisor for Rutherford County with Regions Investment Services “Feed America First is blessed to be welcoming such dynamic and driven individuals to oversee our hunger relief efforts,” said Mike Womack, Executive Director. Mike was recently appointed Executive Director of Feed America First in Fall 2019 after Tom Henry, the organization’s founder, retired. “Our new board members are diverse in skills and backgrounds, and together create a strong team to help usher Feed America First into a stronger future,” said Mike.

Feed America First is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2020, and is projected to save and distribute over 20 million pounds of food to food pantries across the Middle Tennessee region throughout the year.
