Winnipeg Harvest has chosen a new leader to drive the local food bank into the future.
Keren Taylor-Hughes began her new role as the executive director on Tuesday and was the successful candidate of a nationwide search carried out by Harvest’s board of directors.
Taylor-Hughes launched her career in Winnipeg with Child and Family Services and was most recently the strategic change advisor for Ontario Telemedicine Network.
“The fight against hunger and poverty must be relentless, and together with the ongoing support of generous and caring Manitobans, we will continue to strive to meet the growing needs of those in our community,” she said in a statement.
Taylor-Hughes takes over from the retiring David Northcott, and most recently Kate Brenner, who was acting as interim executive director during the transition period.
