Meet Distribution Manager Eddie GalvanMarch 05, 2019
Each week, Distribution Manager Eddie Galvan takes on a major task: determining how much food he will need to feed the 920 families who will visit the Aurora Food Pantry. With Eddie leading the effort, however, the food distribution operation appears seamless, and members of the community can find what they need to suit their dietary and nutritional needs.
Eddie first joined Aurora Food Pantry in 2015 to assist Director of Operations Brisa Barraza with food distribution. As a former restaurant manager, he was skilled in food service, and within six months, he was promoted to full-time Distribution Coordinator.
“I enjoy coming to work every day,” he said, “we have such great neighbors, staff and dedicated volunteers. Without the help of our volunteers, especially, we would not be able to feed our neighbors.”
Eddie’s talents go beyond food, however. In his spare time, he works as a professional DJ providing musical entertainment for a wide variety of special occasions. He also manages a dance studio of choreographers who add their dance skills to these events.
Eddie’s brother Jesus is also part of the Aurora Food Pantry team, supporting his brother as driver and warehouse assistant and traveling throughout the Aurora area and beyond to collect donated food from our food rescue partners.
At Aurora Food Pantry, we are fortunate to have dedicated staff members like Eddie Galvan who work tirelessly ensure that no one in our community should have to go hungry.
