DDI Contributes Leadership Training to
Feeding America

Sparking Change in Our Communities

Several years ago DDI SVP, Rich Wellins, was on a flight where he couldn't help but overhear the conversation his seat mate was having. He turned out to be, Larry, who worked at Feeding America. When they struck up a conversation, Rich learned that one in seven Americans from the richest country in the world go hungry. Feeding America's mission is to solve this problem by serving a network of two hundred food banks and 60,000 pantries. This year they will help provide over three billion meals.

One thing led to another and Rich invited Larry to talk to a small group at DDI about Feeding America's mission. At the end of his presentation Larry felt so passionately about the work of Feeding America that he had tears in his eyes. DDI associates were touched and decided to offer Feeding America a special gift: to contribute DDI training to help improve the leadership skills of both Feeding America corporate and local food bank leaders.

To date, DDI has certified 27 facilitators who have rolled out our training to 23 food banks. Special thanks go to the stellar account management efforts of DDI Client Manager, Deb Dewit, who volunteered her time for this project and to DDI Video Producer, Elizabeth Speed, who made this video that tells the DDI/Feeding America story.

In the words of Phil Lund, vice president of human resources at Feeding America, "Our mission is accomplished through strong, knowledgeable and innovative leadership. DDI has provided the leadership training so critical to our success."

Let's all remember those who are food insecure every day. Consider making a contribution to Feeding America here or your local food bank.

Together we can change the world with one better leader at a time.
