Interfaith Food Pantry Announces New Executive Director
The Board of Trustees of the Interfaith Food Pantry and Resource Center has announced the appointment of Carolyn Lake as the organization’s new executive director.
Lake will succeed Rosemary Gilmartin, who retired after 24 years of service on Dec. 31, 2018.
Lake has been with the organization for 13 years, most recently as associate director, but also as director of operations and director of community relations and development.
“Carolyn possesses a deep understanding of and commitment to our mission,” said Gregory J. Supron, president IFP Board of Trustees.
“In addition, Carolyn has played a major role in shaping the IFP’s strategy and programs over the years. We are confident that under Carolyn’s leadership the IFP will continue to make great strides toward our vision of ending hunger in Morris County.”
“It’s an exciting time in our history”, said Lake.
“Many of the programs put in place in recent years under Rosemary’s leadership have enabled us to expand our reach and become more nimble in identifying and serving people at risk of hunger across the County.
“Moving forward, we will build on her legacy by expanding and strengthening these programs, but also look to expand partnerships across our network to fortify the nutrition safety net for all County residents.”
The Interfaith Food Pantry will celebrate Gilmartin’s legacy at its Annual Spring Gala, which will be held in her honor on April 5, 2019, at the Birchwood Manor in Whippany.
The Gala also marks the Silver (25th) Anniversary of the IFP. For further information about the gala please contact Sandra Benedict, director of development, at 973-538-8049, ext. 221.
