Melissa Moore, CCNP


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 five 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 over 500 Afterschool, Family Child Care and Summer Food sites. Under her leadership, the programs have continued to grow and become more efficient, reducing food waste and increasing food quality. The programs combined serve over three 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.

Elected to the NCA Board in 2016, Melissa now serves as Treasurer and is on the Website, Conference, Policy, and CACFP Week committees. She has enjoyed being a part of the association and looks forward to continuing the work of the Board.
