    Meet the Food For Thought Team!

    Who: Tiffanie Nelson Position: Food Food For Thought Founder & CEO

    A little background: Tiffanie started Food For Thought 2010 after learning that students in her own children's school were hungry and missing meals when they were away from school-provided meals. FFT’s programs are designed to bridge that gap and meet the most critical needs from grades K-12 so students can gain the most out of their education, stay in school and become productive members of the community. Her passion and drive to lead this organization has only grown stronger year after year, as her long-term focus is on the sustainability of the organization to ensure programs are here for the children who need it for years to come.
