Rusty Celebrates History with the Food Bank
Rusty Williams was one of just a handful of employees when he first began his journey with the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank — and when he discovered for himself the critical care the Food Bank provides for the community.
After starting his first tenure with the Food Bank in 1989, Rusty rose through the ranks to become warehouse manager. When an electrical fire damaged his family’s home in Munday, Texas, the Food Bank was there to help.
“The Food Bank helped us with food and had gathered a little money for us to get by until we could find another place to stay,” he recalls.
Rusty loved his job but eventually left the Food Bank to take a job elsewhere. Then, in 2009, his love for the Food Bank brought him back. After serving in various positions, Rusty was promoted again, first to warehouse manager and then to his current position as operations director.
“I have such love for the people who work here and for what the Food Bank does for people in need,” he says.
We are so grateful for the passion Rusty pours into his work each day, and for all
the people – including you – who join together to fight hunger in our community!
