Good Food for Good People has formally restructured as a non-profit educational and social benefit organization. After more than a decade of support and stewardship, Carole Harrah and Sean Siple gave up their ownership of the social enterprise to allow it to grow and prosper.
The educational arm of Good Food, Healthy, Wealthy and Wise, was granted 501c3 status in mid July. The approved charity then filed to take on the assets and liabilities of the LLC that was known as Good Food for Good People. This new structure will allow the community to invest in the mission of Good Food for Good People and maintains a three person Board of Directors to oversee the next phase of expansion and growth.
“The new non-profit status will help us to innovate and drill down even more deeply into our mission. said Sean Siple, chief executive of Good Food for Good People. “”Finding ways to make it easy and practical to eat better is simple to say but hard to do. But it also solves a long list of health problems. For this reason health care leaders in our State want to push us to the next level.”
The new directors of the Board are Angela Harper, Tamkeenat Syed and Shane Wingo. Once the new leadership has had a few meetings to digest the mountain of details before them, they expect to announce a series of expanded initiatives designed to broaden the health impact of Good Food’s work and respond to the community’s support and investment.
