The Chester County Food Bank has named Kevin McDermott of Citadel and Matthew Tucker of Pegasus Technologies to its board of directors.
The pair join 14 other board members who help support the hunger relief organization.
McDermott has been a CFS Wealth Advisor at Citadel for 25 years and works at the Citadel Wealth Management Center.
“As a Chester County resident, I am honored to join the board of the Chester County Food Bank and help in the important fight against hunger in our community,” McDermott said. “In addition to feeding those in need, I will help raise awareness of the organization’s significant influence.”
Tucker, meanwhile, is CEO of Pegasus Technologies in Kennett Square and has been with Pegasus for 13 years.
“Growing up, I was unaware of the challenges many Chester County residents face in receiving quality food,” Tucker said. “As an adult, I’ve seen first-hand this is a serious problem in our area. As a CCFB board member, I will not only volunteer my time and resources, but I will encourage the Pegasus team as they adopt this as their cause.”
The CCFB serves more than 120 partner agencies in Chester County. Through its network of food cupboards, hot meal sites, shelter,s and other social service organizations, the CCFB annually distributes more than 2.5 million pounds of food to Chester County residents with limited or uncertain access to adequate food.
“There’s nothing more rewarding than providing food to our neighbors who need it most,” said Jeff March, Citadel’s President and CEO who also serves as Chair of CCFB’s Board. “I’m thrilled to have these two additional members of our board to contribute to this critical effort.”
