HISTORY

The Stanwood Camano Food Bank provides assistance to more than a thousand community members. By our generous donors, both financially and products, we provide a wide variety of food, as well as pet food and basic toiletries. This generosity translates into essential assistance to children, seniors, working poor, single adults, homeless, and families of all backgrounds.

The Stanwood Camano Food Bank mission is made possible by the generosity of our wonderful community. First, are the hundreds of volunteers who, each month, provide about two thousand hours of service. These volunteers are then led by the volunteer board under their strategic direction. Second, the food bank rescues hundreds of pounds of produce, dairy, and bread from grocery store partners. Third, many generous individuals support Stanwood Camano Food Bank by donations to both the food bank and thrift store.

By this tremendous community support, the Stanwood Camano Food Bank serves over a thousand clients per month, distributing over 50,000 pounds of food.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Kelly-Ruhoff

Kelly Ruhoff

Prior to starting her professional career in real estate, Kelly spent 23 years in the media industry, beginning in radio before transitioning into newspaper journalism. She retired as editor of Stanwood Camano News in the fall of 2015.  Joining the Stanwood Camano Food Bank board, gives her the opportunity to keep in touch with the community she wrote about for years – to not just tell people’s story – but to help alter their outcome.

Myra-Reinhardt

Myra Reinhardt

Vice President & Branch Manager Coastal Community Bank in Stanwood and Camano Island.  My connection with the Stanwood Camano Foodbank is a constant reminder of our amazing the community and how fortunate I am to I live, work, and volunteer here.  I continue to be inspired by those that come forward to share their time, talent, and treasure to benefit our neighbors who are in need.

Roger-Clark

Roger Clark

Roger is a CPA and former Office Managing Partner of the Pacific NW Practice of Grant Thornton LLP, an international accounting firm.  Roger has served as an officer and board member for a number of nonprofit organizations. After moving to Camano Island, he began to volunteer at the thrift store and then joined the board.  He wants to reduce hunger in our community and enjoys working with other volunteers to achieve a positive outcome for those in need.

Ricahard-Paulen

Richard Paulen

Richard is retired counsel of Barnes & Thornbug, LLP, an environmental practice group.  Richard involved with the SCFB because he adopted the philosophy several years ago of an American folk singer who championed the cause of hunger and said that in a country that can feed everyone at least three times over, no one should go to bed hungry.  The SCFB helps make that a reality in the greater Stanwood/Camano area.

Luci-Morgan

Luci Morgan

Luci is a Property Management Assistant with Windermere Real Estate.  Luci became involved with SCFBS earlier this year because she wanted to give back to my community.  As a current volunteer (and past employee) of the Camano Center, she witnessed the need for services in this area and felt her experience, connections and time, would best be utilized as a board member.  Luci hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Services and she is especially interested in the needs of seniors (which happens to be one of the fastest growing demographics for hunger).

Jordon

Jordon Vargas

Treasurer.  Jordon has been on the Board of Directors since 2012 and was appointed Treasurer in 2014.  He is involved to help anyone who needs it and help the food bank provide solutions to fight hunger. Growing up in the Stanwood/Camano community, he wanted to give back to this great community and enjoy working with great organizations who do so.

Drew-Fosie

Drew Foisie

Drew was born and raised in Washington State, did his undergraduate studies in English at Central Washington University, and served as a Young Adult Service Corps missionary in Taipei, Taiwan in 2006/2007.  He graduated Virginia Theological Seminary in 2010, served as Assistant Rector at an historic, colonial parish in Virginia Beach, and was called to be Vicar of St. Aidan’s, Camano Island in 2014.  He and his wife, Dawn (also a priest), married in 2015.  Drew is an avid snow skier, water skier, reader of books on politics, social sciences, economics, spirituality and the Bible, enjoys woodworking and has plans to build a strip wood kayak.
