Human Touch: Tina Postel of Loaves & Fishes/Friendship Trays
Join us for Human Touch on November 18th from 11:00-11:30am EST when Tina Postel, CEO of Loaves & Fishes/Friendship Trays, sits down to talk with us about gratitude, food insecurity, and how her organization has continued to provide food access during the pandemic.
More on Loaves & Fishes/Friendship Trays:
Nearly 15-percent of Mecklenburg County’s households are considered food insecure, which means they have a reduced quality and variety of diet, may eat less, and eating patterns are disrupted due to lack of money and resources.
At Loaves & Fishes/Friendship Trays, their mission is to provide a week’s worth of nutritious groceries to people within our community facing economic hardships. Last year, the organization provided groceries to over 120,200 people compared to 80,232 in 2019.
Postel came to Charlotte in 2015 from Billings, Montana where she served as CEO of the Montana Family YMCA for 5 years. She worked with the United Way of Central Carolinas in Major Gifts before being named CEO of Loaves & Fishes/Friendship Trays in 2016. As CEO, Postel oversees a network of emergency food pantries in Charlotte, North Carolina and the primary Meals on Wheels program in Mecklenburg County.
