We’d like to introduce our readers to new board member Christiana Mann. We’re grateful to have her expertise and passion.
Hi! My name is Christiana Mann and I recently accepted a board position for the Soup Kitchen of Muncie at the beginning of 2020.
I have supported the Soup Kitchen of Muncie over the years as an independent food vendor, and through the Ball State University Hospitality and Food Management program, where I currently teach. My first “hands-on” experience was during a faculty externship opportunity during the summer of 2019. Over the course of three months I volunteered in different roles observing, participating and learning the ins and outs of the organization. During that time I met so many friendly folks serving and receiving with such genuine love and compassion for their brothers and sisters. I knew I wanted to be a part of that and continue volunteering in some capacity.
I have over 20+ years of applied experience in food protection and enforcement, with a special interest in safety and sanitation. In my new role I will support the great work our staff and volunteers do on a daily basis, and by helping to create policies and procedures regarding acquisition, delivery, production, and service of food for our guests, especially during these exceptional and trying times.
