Board of Directors
FOUNDER / PRESIDENT
After a second chance at life post bone marrow stem cell transplant to treat acute myeloid leukemia, Kristi learned about the need in the cancer community to provide meal assistance. Having 24 years in the catering, events, and hospitality industries, she wanted to bring her professional and personal expertise together to serve up much needed support like she graciously received from friends in the local culinary community.
Inspired by his wife's cancer diagnosis, Martin became a Cancer Certified Personal Trainer & founded Fight Back Performance & Recovery to assist those that have gone through cancer to build back strength & stamina. Aside from being a trainer, he has also been a 25-year veteran in Financial Services and held numerous roles in product management, strategy, and innovation.
As a longtime hotel and corporate catering & events leader at companies like Westin, Hilton, Walt Disney Resorts, and Fairmont, Marc brings experience in running detailed logistics, budgets, and creative catering management solutions. Born and raised in Canada, he came to the USA to attend Michigan State where he still serves on the Board of the School of Hospitality Business.
Over the past 10 years Caroline has worked in many parts of our food system, including farming, grocery, food service, events & hospitality. She got her start in the culinary community working with Founder, Kristi, at FEAST Food Tours as the company's 1st full-time employee. Watching Kristi's cancer recovery, she gained an appreciation for the importance of community support during treatment.
Greg brings over 20 years in Culinary Operations and Supply Chain & Logistics to the Board. Additionally, he spent 10 years as a Sr. Executive Chef for the largest group purchasing organization in the world. Having twice been diagnosed with cancer, it is important to him to insure those braving treatment have a daily chore removed from their shoulders. He currently lives in Raleigh with his wife, three children, & two dogs.
