For the finale of our 45 for 45 series, we spotlight Vinsen Faris, Chief Executive Officer of Meals on Wheels San Antonio!
Vinsen is nationally recognized as an advocate for senior issues, especially senior hunger and is a past Board Chair of Meals on Wheels America. With over 35 years of experience fighting for our seniors, we're lucky to have Vinsen behind the wheel as our Chief Executive Officer.
Vinsen started with Meals on Wheels San Antonio in 2016 and hasn't looked back since! As CEO, his responsibilities include navigating partnerships, communicating with officials, and overseeing all operations of Meals on Wheels San Antonio. His leadership, especially during the pandemic and the realization of the new Meals on Wheels San Antonio Campus of Grace, has been instrumental to the organization's growth and sustainability.
With all that responsibility on his plate, he still makes time to help deliver more than a meal to our older and disabled neighbors! Vinsen always invites those who have never delivered before to "come to deliver meals with us, knock on those doors, see who we are serving, and see what a difference you can make in San Antonio and South-Central Texas." We can't thank Vinsen enough for all he has done and continues to do for Meals on Wheels!
Thank you to Vinsen for being so dedicated to Meals on Wheels, the community, the staff, and the families we serve!
