Good Shepherd Food Bank
Kristen Miale is the President of Good Shepherd Food Bank, Maine’s largest hunger relief organization. Good Shepherd Food Bank works with a network of more than 400 nonprofit organizations to distribute 25 million meals a year throughout the state to people in need. Before her role as President, she was the founder and program director of Cooking Matters Maine, a local chapter of Share Our Strength’s nationally recognized cooking and nutrition education program for low-income families. Prior to her work with food security, Kristen worked for over a decade in the private equity and business consulting fields. After volunteering for hunger relief organizations, she decided to make her passion for ending hunger her occupation. She received her undergraduate degree from Boston College and her Master’s in Business Administration from Boston University, where she studied both entrepreneurship and nonprofit management. Kristen currently serves on the Board of the Maine Philanthropy Center. She resides in Kennebunk with her husband, Drew, and two sons (Sam 18 and Alex 15). When she isn’t working, she enjoys reading (especially at the beach), running, cooking, and spending time with her two cats.
