Cynthia Hernandez will succeed Goad as executive director, and she’s already jumped in with both feet. She has 20 years of experience in nonprofit work, and her motto is, “The next best thing to loving someone is feeding them.”

Feed LH was organized by members of Lake Highlands United Methodist Church in 1996 as an outreach to neighbors from nearby apartment communities. The nonprofit works to address food insecurity in our neighborhood – but their services go far beyond their name. In addition to their food distribution program, they collect and distribute new and gently used clothing, household items and furniture, provide after school homework help, send kids to summer camp and sustain families and elderly residents in a host of physical and spiritual ways.

This Sunday, Goad and Hernandez will be celebrated at a come-and-go party from 2 – 3:30 p.m. at the home of Lisa and Stuart Sides, 9949 Caribou Trail. You may RSVP at 214-505-1315. You may donate here.
