Michael retired in 2005 after completing a successful career in the for profit corporate arena. Michael’s focus was always on accomplishing aggressive business goals, and helping people with whom he worked achieve their greatest success.
Michael joined the Livingston Food Pantry as Executive Director in January 2009. After managing the Pantry’s response to double-digit increases in the demand for emergency food during the recession, he developed a vision that would serve the community in many ways to address the root causes of hunger and poverty in Livingston and Park County.
The effort came to fruition in January 2015, when the Livingston Food Pantry became the Livingston Food Resource Center and moved into a new 5,000 square feet facility that houses the Livingston Food Pantry, a Community Meeting Room, and a commercial Community Kitchen. The Center, offering many food related services and programs, has become a hub for community activity.
