Greater Lansing Food Bank Announces the Appointment of Lavon Dennis to the GLFB Board of Directors

Lansing, Michigan – October 14, 2014 – Joe Wald, Executive Director of the Greater Lansing Food Bank, announced the appointment of Lavon Dennis to the organization’s Board of Directors.

Mr. Dennis currently serves as a Senior Director at Coverys Insurance Services, a Coverys Company.  He has more than 28 years of experience in a multitude of disciplines within the insurance industry.  Prior to coming to Coverys, Mr. Dennis enjoyed a 20 year career at Auto-Owners Insurance Group where he held several underwriting and leadership positions.  In his present role at Coverys Insurance Services, Mr. Dennis is responsible for medical professional liability physician sales and retention for Coverys in Michigan.  A longtime resident of Lansing, Mr. Dennis and his wife Karen have two adult children.    

The Greater Lansing Food Bank (GLFB) was created in 1981 to meet a need in the Greater Lansing community that became critical during the major recession of the early 1980’s. Now, more than 30 years later, the Greater Lansing Food Bank is still working to address this need that will not go away…the need to feed those less fortunate. In 2012, the Greater Lansing Food Bank and the Mid Michigan Food Bank merged operations to create one regional food bank serving the needs of Ingham, Eaton, Clinton, Shiawassee, Gratiot, Clare and Isabella counties. Through a network of pantries, related agencies, and community partners, and the Food Movers Program and The Garden Project, the GLFB is working to provide access to good, healthy and plentiful food for all. In 2013, more than 6,000,000 meals were provided to people who might otherwise go hungry in the mid-Michigan region. The majority of the people we serve are children and seniors on fixed incomes.  Unfortunately, the need continues.
