Work Highlights
  • Analyzed current agency capacity of 21 member agencies through on-site visits and identified issues inhibiting food distribution
  • Created a report based on a survey analyzing of current agency capacity. The report projected potential increase of distribution and identified issues that inhibited the organization’s efforts to increase distribution to those in need in their communities
  • Presented findings to the Food Bank of WNY’s Agency Services Committee, Physical Systems Committee and Board Members
  • Secured central office approval to pursue grant funding for storage equipment and to decentralize certain field operating decisions 
In their words

"I  leave Buffalo a mini expert in the Food Bank business, a sous chef, a better runner, a more socially aware person, a slightly improved Avalon player, a Buffalo sports fan (Browns = Bills at this point) and most of all, a motivated person to always seek to take the High Road in business and in life."


"Our organization benefitted greatly from this opportunity. The impact of this project is going to be implemented throughout our network. Emily always came prepared, stayed on point, was thoroughly engaged with Food Bank staff, member agencies and board members, is extremely motivated, and mature. Emily will be a success at whatever path she chooses."
