Jill manages and coordinates OFS’ network of emergency food distribution partners, which helps feed 200,000 individuals every month.  The network includes food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, transitional homes and community organizations, located in 30 Missouri and Illinois counties.

Prior to OFS, Jill spent 12 years working in the maternal, child and family health arena.  All of her career has focused on the development and health of children and youth.  Over that time, her work has included training others in the social determinants of health and how racially-biased policies have impacted the well-being of children and youth.

From Jill: “I love food!  I want to help others access and enjoy food, too.  Food is a foundation to the well-being and productivity of our community and region.”
