Andy Kimpel

There is no more selfless or tireless anti-hunger advocate in Central Florida than Andy Kimpel. As a volunteer for Second Harvest Food Bank, Andy is a constant ambassador for our mission, and frequently brings in groups and other new people for our hunger awareness tours. In addition, he serves as the national point of contact for Feeding America food banks with the CHEP Corporation, who provides distribution solutions and pallets to food banks around the country free of charge. Andy also volunteers for every "Trade Show gleaning" project at the Orange County Convention center that comes along. He has helped our organization collect between 20,000 and 250,000 pounds of food samples and other supplies PER SHOW that he has worked. Further, Andy has been a key advisor in the pre-planning stage of a campaign to build a new food bank facility for Central Florida. His logistics expertise has provided a very unique perspective on the new food bank’s "ideal" location from an operations and transportation perspective. Andy is a true believer that hunger can be solved in this community, and works very hard toward that end.
