Emergency Food Pantry Names Pat Claus as Executive Director
FARGO, ND – November 14, 2014 – The Emergency Food Pantry has named Pat Claus as Executive Director. Claus has a distinguished career of community service and leadership with the Fargo Police Department, most recently serving as Deputy Chief. In addition to serving on a number of community organizations, Claus also founded his own holiday charity “Random Acts of Christmas Cheer” along with his wife Kim. “Pat’s passion and commitment to serving others, helping solve problems, and inspiring others to do the same will make Pat a highly effective leader of the Pantry as it pursues its mission of serving the hungry in the Fargo Moorhead area,” said Tom Rohleder, Chair of the Board Selection Committee. “We are delighted that Pat has chosen to continue his service to the community as the leader of our organization.” Claus will begin employment as the Executive Director on December 1, 2014.
For over four decades, the Emergency Food Pantry has provided help to hungry families and individuals with one week’s supply of healthy food. These groceries tide them over in times of crisis such as unemployment, family violence, medical problems and other issues. In 2013, the Emergency Food Pantry provided approximately 1.3 million pounds of food valued at over $2 million dollars to more than 9,000 families and 30,000 individuals in the Fargo Moorhead community.
