The River Food Pantry has named Rhonda Adams as Executive Director.
Adams has seamlessly assumed the role of interim executive director since June, a reason why The River never missed a beat throughout the pandemic. She brings decades of leadership experience from the U.S. Army, Avon Products, and The River, where she has served over seven years in multiple director roles.
“It is with great pleasure The River Board of Directors announce the promotion of Rhonda Adams to Executive Director,” said Jennifer Zisser, The River’s Board Chair. “Rhonda has a proven track record in serving from her heart, being a player-coach and always putting the needs of The River’s clients front and center.”
“I have been so impressed with the hard work of The River’s staff and volunteers during this difficult time,” Adams said. “It’s humbling to take on this role and responsibility for our community, especially in the midst of a pandemic. Eliminating hunger is a community challenge that we can only solve by working together. I’m truly excited about what I know we will be able to accomplish together!”
