What Motivates FRB Board Chair, Bill Adams.
Because it’s been obvious to me that long term sustainable development is necessary to address the real issues of hunger and poverty in our world, it is a great privilege for me to serve on the board of directors of the Foods Resource Bank (FRB). After retiring from business, I responded to the 2003 call from the Christian Reformed World Relief Committee (CRWRC) to run their Disaster Response Services program. (CRWRC) is a founding member agency of FRB). There is a great need in the world today for organized and compassionate assistance when disasters strike and I am proud to be part of an organization that delivers help in the form of volunteer labor, food and other relief services to disaster stricken communities all around the world. But CRWRC is also committed to the long term development of communities, going way beyond the immediate recovery from the effects of a natural disaster. Therein lies the basis for CRWRC’s partnership with FRB.
