Since Anne Goodman, president and CE0 of the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, joined the Food Bank in 1999, the organization has gone through a transformation. The Greater Cleveland Food Bank (GCFB) has merged with two other nonprofits, built a new LEED certified community food distribution center, increased our impact and our distribution of nutritious food, won Feeding America’s Food Bank of the Year award (the highest honor a food bank can achieve), and expanded innovative programming, including SNAP Outreach, throughout our six county service area to provide more nutritious meals to Northeast Ohioans in need. Anne is leaving the Greater Cleveland Food Bank in July for a position at the Saint Luke’s Foundation.
"Anne has accomplished a great deal in her 15 years at the Food Bank and is leaving the organization in a strong position with a diverse, community-wide Board of Directors, an experienced executive team and a committed staff. We are confident that she will continue to have a positive impact on struggling families in our community in her new role," said Shirley Stineman, board chairperson, Greater Cleveland Food Bank.
“I am eager to continue to work to improve the health and well-being of people in greater Cleveland in my new capacity as CEO of the Saint Luke’s Foundation. My work at the Food Bank has given me a great perspective on a wide range of issues that I think will be useful to the Foundation as we work to build a stronger community," said Anne Goodman, president & CEO, Greater Cleveland Food Bank.
The Greater Cleveland Food Bank's Board of Directors has named William Coquillette as its interim President & CEO while it searches for a permanent replacement. Coquillette, a current Food Bank board member, was formerly a partner at Jones Day. He is a former chair of the Food Bank board and has been involved with the Food Bank since its inception.
“The community’s continued support of the GCFB will be key to our success. Our work to provide 40 million meals annually for struggling Northeast Ohioans will continue through the transition and well into the future,” said Stineman.
