Board Member

Melissa Moore graduated from the University of Maryland Baltimore County with a degree in Sociology. She has been working with the Child and Adult Care Food Program and Summer Food Service Program for over four years and currently serves as the Program Director for Food Access at Family League of Baltimore.

Family League is a nonprofit working towards a Baltimore where every child is born healthy, succeeds in school, graduates high school and transitions into higher education and the workforce. Family League is the largest CACFP sponsor in the state, serving afterschool, summer and family childcare homes. As Food Access Director, Melissa oversees 300 CACFP and SFSP vended sites. Under her leadership, the programs have continued to grow and become more efficient, reducing food waste and increasing food quality. In both programs combined these sites serve over two million meals each year.

Melissa also serves as Chair of The Baltimore Partnership to End Childhood Hunger, a coalition of food-service providers, nonprofits, community groups, advocates, faith communities, public and civic agencies collaborating to decrease childhood hunger in Baltimore City. The Partnership’s vision is a city where all children can reliably access nutritious food to fuel success. Their objective is to increase food security for the city's families, and leveraging federal nutrition programs is a key strategy in this work. The Partnership engages state and local agencies as well as community leaders, elected officials and other nonprofit organizations in concerted strategies to eradicate childhood hunger.

Newly elected to the NCA Board in 2016, Melissa serves as the Website Chair and is on the Conference, Policy, and CACFP Week committees. She has enjoyed being a part of the association and looks forward to being a part of the Board.
