Pam DiPietro, Executive Director of Foothills Food Bank for 18 years, retired on December 31, 2020. Her tough decision led to new leadership, but not before the food bank’s board of directors decided to dedicate the 7,000-square-foot food bank headquarters in her name for perpetuity.
During a presentation ceremony, DiPietro was at a loss for words. “It has been an honor and a pleasure to serve this amazing food bank for so many years,” says DiPietro. “I will miss the clients, staff and volunteers, however, they will remain in my heart always. Furthermore, I am shocked and thrilled to have this important building dedicated in my name. It has been a wonderful ride and this phenomenal food bank will be in my thoughts forever and a day.”
