Lisa Mack Named President & CEO of National CACFP Sponsors Association
July 15, 2022
On July 14, 2022 Lisa Mack was named President & CEO of the National CACFP Sponsors Association (NCA). This advance comes after over a decade of dedicated service. Lisa joined NCA in 2012 as the first professional hire by the Board of Directors, and in 2016 was asked to be the Executive Director. At the 2022 National Child Nutrition Conference Lisa was presented with a service award for her dedicated work with the NCA.
The USDA Child and Adult Food Program is an indicator of quality care and plays a pivotal role in feeding and nourishing our nation’s most vulnerable population. Its implementation is crucial in giving the nation’s children a healthy start while offering providers financial reimbursement for serving nutritious meals. The NCA is a critical player in executing this work. “At the National CACFP Sponsors Association, we promote, support, advocate for, and represent the community of professionals working to ensure access to food for the millions of children and adults who are without nutrition security in the absence of child nutrition programs,” said Lisa.
Lisa’s elevation in leadership comes at a time of change and uncertainty for CACFP providers. “ Our immediate goal is to help our members and the CACFP community navigate and understand the changing requirements in the food program due to the pandemic and temporary waivers while advocating for permanent changes in Congress,” she said.
Lisa Mack is the responsible for working with the board of directors to develop and implement the long-term operating plan to ensure the growth and success of the National CACFP Sponsors Association. Central to that plan is managing member and partner relationships, resource and product development, and training and conference programming. Lisa previously served as the director of corporate communications for a food service software corporation where she was responsible for client communications and newsletters, user group conferences, and partnerships with industry organizations such as Second Harvest, Research Chefs Association, Women's Foodservice Forum and the Society for the Advancement of Food Service Research. Lisa is a graduate of Pace University with a BBA.
