Nicole manages purchasing for seven programs, including Order Up!, Kid’s Café and Community Buy for our member agencies. She is also responsible for the allocations for five of those programs, as well as for TEFAP and our two largest food drives, Stamp out Hunger and Bringing Hope to the Table.
Much of her day is spent negotiating with vendors and carefully stewarding budgets to ensure that our agencies get the healthiest product choices for their clients. Nicole joined the Food Lifeline team in April 2007 and since then has had the privilege of wearing different hats within the organization. A true data geek, Nicole is committed to ending hunger in Washington and enjoys the opportunity to work with colleagues in the hunger relief community. She marvels daily at their hard work and dedication to feeding hungry people.
