Robin Peacock: Working Together for Hunger Relief
March 24 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Join us to learn more about how one local non-profit is collaborating to make a greater impact on hunger relief in our community. Robin Peacock, the Executive Director of MEND (Meeting Essential Needs with Dignity), will be on hand to discuss how MEND strengthens and supports a network of 19 food pantries across Essex County by collaborating with “like-missioned” organizations and by using The Green Bean — a school-bus-turned-mobile-food-pantry — to provide greater access to healthy foods in underserved communities.
Robin Peacock joined MEND as a grant writer in November of 2015 and became its first executive director in January of 2018. Robin has a long history of community engagement and leadership, having served as a board member and volunteer for several non-profits in Essex County. Before joining the nonprofit sector, Robin worked for nearly 15 years as a tax attorney for the IRS Office of Chief Counsel and Deloitte Tax LLP.
