SHERIDAN — The Food Group’s Board of Directors announced that Executive Director Missi Hubert has resigned her position effective May 31. Hubert has led the organization since 2014 and managed its growth and expansion during her tenure.

“It is with regret that the Board of Directors accepts the resignation of our Executive Director,” Food Group board President Arin Waddell said in a press release Monday. “Having Missi Hubert has been a true asset to our nonprofit organization and will be greatly missed. Missi has been a leader and a clear voice in our mission to provide nourishment (both food and books) to the children of Sheridan County. She has been effective, efficient and focused in a time of great transition.”

The Food Group is currently providing food to more than 475 children in Sheridan County, up from 375 when Hubert began. The Little Free Pantries began in 2018 and provide non-perishable food and snacks in public locations throughout Sheridan. Teen Pantries are located on the Sheridan High School, Sheridan Junior High School and John C. Schiffer Collaborative School grounds and hold both snacks and hygiene items for students. Additionally, John C. Schiffer Collaborative School students are receiving breakfast items to start their day off with a meal.

“It’s been exciting to be a part of the growth of this organization. I’m proud of its impact and so grateful for the army of volunteers who make it happen,” Hubert said. “I believe in The Food Group’s mission and am confident it will continue to thrive and grow.”

A search committee will be named to interview potential candidates for executive director. The job description will be posted on The Food Group’s website, by Feb. 8.
