Board Members, Staff, and Volunteers
Our board members, staff, and volunteers work throughout the year to serve clients in need of food assistance throughout Hood River County and Mosier. We'd like to share their stories - and hope you'll consider joining us as a volunteer. If you're curious, learn more about the FISH history in the county's communities.
Billie is our volunteer coordinator. She has worked with FISH for over 10 years, and helps make sure volunteers are trained and available throughout the year. She divides her time among the 4 FISH sites, and during the Covid-19 crisis is often found at FISH, making sure we are operating safely. Billie has recently been involved in implementing the new Link2Feed software at FISH, and she writes the monthly newsletter.

Marianne became involved in FISH food Bank in the late 1990s when she served as the liaison for Gorge Ecumenical Ministries. FISH was a Ministry of GEM. She has served as chair of the Board of Directors for nearly 20 years.
