Kathryn Strickland, former executive director of the Food Bank of North Alabama, has signed on to lead Birmingham's largest hunger relief organization.

She will take the helm of the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama on Oct. 3.

Strickland has a wealth of experience working with nonprofits. During her time with the Food Bank of North Alabama in Huntsville, Strickland led efforts to distribute 8 million pounds of food annually to the 11 counties the nonprofit serves.

Prior to her work in Huntsville, Strickland acted as the executive director of LIFT Housing and directed affordable housing programs.

“Kathryn will bring an extraordinary level of skill, experience and energy to the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama,” said David Bell, chairman of The Community Food Bank of Central Alabama Board of Directors. “She is the ideal person to help us fully realize the food bank’s aspirations and engage the community in addressing food insecurity throughout central Alabama.”

Strickland, a native of Birmingham, was recruited as a part of a national search led by BoardWalk Consulting of Atlanta. She earned a B.A. in English from Davidson College and an M.A. in Clinical Psychology from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology.

After being awarded a scholarship, Strickland attended the Strategic Perspectives Nonprofit Management program at Harvard Business School.

“I’m honored to serve as executive director of the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama and thrilled to return to my home town of Birmingham,” Strickland said. “With over 80,000 children in central Alabama at risk of hunger, I’m eager to join the food bank’s phenomenal staff to further its vital mission. In partnership with such an innovative, generous community, I believe we can meet this challenge.”
