So long and good luck Chris!

Chris conducted a 10-year programmatic review of all of our food access programs. The data collected is extremely beneficial to see where we’ve been and what opportunities exist for growth. Chris's second project was one we are particularly grateful for, as he was instrumental in obtaining our USDA Good Handling Practices (or GAP) Certification. And when Chris wasn't knee-deep in numbers and certification work, you could find him helping in our Food Hub with deliveries and packaging orders.


You might not know this, but the AmeriCorps VISTA program has been critical to the growth of Capital Roots over the years. At one point in our history, we had just as many VISTAs working with us as we did staff, and throughout the years, as their service terms ended, many of our VISTAs have been hired as permanent members of our team. And for those who headed off on their next steps, they always knew they left a lasting impact.


So Chris, thank you for being such an asset to our team and for sharing your positive, go-getter attitude with us all! We wish you all the best on your next chapter.
