Leadership Statement:

During my 16-year tenure at the United Food Bank as a volunteer and ultimately President and CEO, I have witnessed great acts of kindness and humanity. Our donors, both individuals and businesses, are generous and compassionate. Because of their generosity our staff and board feel it is our duty to keep this organization lean with all eyes on efficiency and effectiveness. We know that the best way to help the hungry in our community is to do what we do best...distribute as much food as possible to our partner agencies in the most logistically savvy and cost-effective way we can.

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Response Not Provided

Program Description:

Emergency Food Program: Food and household commodities items are distributed in case-lot quantities to our participating agencies that pack and provide food boxes to families and individuals in need of emergency assistance. A typical emergency food box contains enough food to feed a family of four for three days. During our FY 2007-2008, over 336,800 Emergency Food Boxes were provided to more than 834,000 of our neighbors in need. Community Network Distribution: Food and household commodities items are distributed in case-lot quantities to our partner agencies that serve hot meals and/or snacks. These agencies are shelters, soup kitchens, youth programs, senior programs, residential facilities, rehab facilities, or other food banks. On average, these agencies account for half, or more, of the food distributed by United Food Bank annually. Kids Café: This program is a collaborative effort with partner social service agencies of the East Valley and eastern Arizona to provide a nutritious meal/snack five days weekly to at-risk children. We presently operate Kids Cafes in Apache Junction, Cave Creek, Chandler, Gilbert, Guadalupe, Lakeside, Laveen, Mesa, Phoenix, Queen Creek, Scottsdale, Show Low and Tempe, providing over 4,280 kids a daily meal/snack. Kids Cafes are open to all children of the community with no restrictions or prequalification. Food for Thought: A partnership program with schools and other educational organizations in which we reinforce their efforts to provide tutorial assistance and other educational classes for at-risk children and their families. We provide nutritionally balanced food boxes, which are distributed by the participating organizations to the families of those students who have satisfactorily participated in the tutorial/educational programs. Helping Hands: A community outreach program aimed at reaching volunteers, in the human services industry, who might recognize the need for emergency boxes for their clients. ?Helping Hands? food boxes are built on-site and are distributed through the efforts of a network of volunteers. Help Yourself! : A self-help purchased food program for anyone wanting to stretch their food dollars. Boxes of purchased food will provide $40+ worth of food for only $16 in either cash or Electronic Benefits Transfer.

Program Long-Term Success:

We distributed 11,405,482lbs. of food to 239 Community Partner Agencies.
