Our Operating Staff
Ann Wiard is the Director of the Good Neighbors Soup Kitchen. Ann comes to Good Neighbors after spending a year working as an AmeriCorps*Vista (Volunteers in Service to America) in the Washington, DC area. She recruited, trained, and supervised volunteers for A Wider Circle. Ann grew up in a small town in central Ohio, graduated from Shawnee State University in Portsmouth, Ohio, and was a catering manager for a Panera store in Columbus, Ohio, before joining AmeriCorps. Ann plans to use both her food service experience and her volunteer coordinating skills at Good Neighbors. Ann is excited about providing an open and caring environment to anyone who chooses to visit the soup kitchen and food pantry as a diner, for food assistance, or as a volunteer.
