Michelle Oates Celebrates 25 Years at the Food Bank!
We are thrilled to recognize Michelle Oates for 25 years of service with Wichita Falls Area Food Bank! Over the years she’s worked her way up from Part-Time Secretary to Administrative Director!
Michelle wears quite a few hats in her position. She handles agency relations, oversees SNAP outreach and manages the Farmers’ Market Nutrition, Emergency Food Assistance and Senior Programs.
Of all her responsibilities, Michelle says her favorite is visiting our agency partners. She loves the rewarding feeling of seeing people in the communities we serve access healthy food.
“I love the Food Bank and I love what we do — it’s my passion,” she says.
Michelle comes by this passion honestly. Her mother also started as a Secretary at the Food Bank and even served as CEO! Michelle’s dad used to do deliveries for the Food Bank, and other family members were employed in our warehouse.
We are so very grateful for Michelle and her family’s legacy of hard work here at Wichita Falls Area Food Bank. We rely on dedicated people to fulfill our hunger-relief mission. Thank you, Michelle!
