Operations Manager

Neil Heaton

When I finished university, I came to Interfaith working as the driver, picking up food from donors. Over time, my position has evolved, and I am now Operations Manager, which includes shipping/receiving, site management, and purchasing. When I first started, it was merely a job but over time it became a passion and very enjoyable career.

Client Intake Supervisor

Michelle Parry

I came to the Interfaith Food Bank as a Christmas temporary worker in 2021 and ended up happily joining the team in Client intake in 2022.

My background is primarily in the restaurant/service industry but had decided to switch my focus to finding a career in the non-profit/ helping sector. When the position of Client Intake supervisor came available, I jumped on it! It has been extremely rewarding to work in the community at the Interfaith Food Bank and I hope to continue to do so for years to come.

Fun Facts about me – I have a tripod dog named Rosie and I bowl a 140 at 5 pin.
