Re: “The 2016 Power List: Food and Drink

I think it's wonderful that Feedmore is feeding so many people, but I'm curious if we are witnessing unintended consequences, which are changed behaviors - people simply become dependent on this resource as part of their budget planning rather than it meeting a need when it's necessary? Allowing that the economy for many has not fully recovered from 2008, it is not in alignment with Feedmore's rapid rate of growth (based on their own statistics). It prompts the question, then, of whether it has become another social service benefit on which people have become dependent. It does depend on Feedmore's own mission, of course. Is it's mission to provide a "just in time" service or is it a long-term social service benefit for which to rely on? Or has Feedmore changed/revamped their mission to expand into the "healthy eating" industry? Is this part of the organizational strategic plan - to grow to provide more services, hire more staff, and therefore increase much needed revenues (putting more burden on the philanthropic communities)?
