When the Memorial Day Tornados hit our community, The Foodbank team had no idea they'd be working in crisis mode for two years. The tornado outbreak would prove to be a trial run to a more widespread crisis: the COVID-19 pandemic. Join us as we hear from Lee Lauren Truesdale, Chief Development Officer, and Lauren Tappel, Development Lead. Lauren and Lee will share how The Foodbank has served our community in the midst of crisis and expanded their support systems, simultaneously. Get a sneak peak of The Foodbank warehouse and gardens during this exclusive tour.
