Melinda JB Lidbetter, Rogue Powerpack Director

I have worked within food services, in one capacity or another for over 40 years, including Concessions, Catering, Campus Dining, Corporate Dining, Summer Camps and Schools. I have been the Manager for the Food Services of Phoenix-Talent Schools since 2005.

I produce gift baskets for auctions to support the Stop Hunger campaign. I also am involved in the U.S. Postal Food Drive each April. I have worked with Community Gardens and been a volunteer with the Children’s Advocacy Center, Access, and with local 4-H.

Ensuring children do not go hungry and have safe, nutrient food to eat is of great importance to me. I am also particularly concerned that children have a safe and nurturing environment to grow up in.

I aided in the creation and development of the Rogue Powerpack Program with the Junior League. I help create shelf stable menus for the weekend meals that are supplied to the children through the RPP.
