Kelowna Food Bank executive director steps down.

The Central Okanagan Community Food Bank is looking for a new executive director.

Food Bank Board of Director Chair Fraser Campbell announced Tuesday that the Food Bank will be advertising for a new executive director as Lenetta Parry leaves the role with the Okanagan’s largest Food Bank.

“Lenetta has dedicated time, energy and effort into making our community a better place. We are proud of where we have come since 2015 when the Westside Community Food Bank and Kelowna Community Food Bank amalgamated,” says Campbell.  “Lenetta has been a big part of that and our board wishes her the best.” 

The Board of Directors will assist the Central Okanagan Food Bank’s team until a replacement is found.

Parry adds ‘I’ve really appreciated working alongside an amazing team of staff, volunteers and community partners. Together, we have done great work building this leading edge facility and providing dignity to our clients. I wish the organization future success.’

The Central Okanagan Food Bank continues to be committed to creating a healthy, hunger free community.
