Food Bank hires fundraiser

By Todd Cohen

RALEIGH, N.C. – Allen Reep, who recently stepped down after six years as director of development at The Healing Place of Wake County, has been named vice president for development at the Food Bank of Eastern & Central North Carolina.

Reep will be responsible for raising $4.4 million a year form individuals, foundations and corporations to help cover the Food Bank’s annual budget of $6.2 million, says Jane Cox, executive director.

In the fiscal year that began July 1, the Food Bank still needs to raise $200,000, says Cox.

The Food Bank distributes over 31 million pounds of food year to nearly 900 partner agencies that feed hungry people in 34 counties.

Reep succeeds Bert Fisher, who left the Food Bank in February to become executive director of Community Partnerships, a Raleigh nonprofit that provides services and support to people with disabilities.

Cox recently announced her resignation, effective May 31, and will become a managing director at Leadership Forum, a Durham-based international consulting practice where she will work with nonprofit and government clients.
