More than half a million Denver-area families in need can count on regular meals — and a serving of hope — thanks in part to Kevin Seggelke.
During Seggelke’s 16-year term as president and CEO, the Food Bank of the Rockies tripled the number of families it served and upped its annual food distribution from 15 million to 60 million pounds, serving more than 50 million meals a year.
This did not surprise those who know him. Compassion and commitment to helping others have been woven into Seggelke’s moral fiber since his days as a Saint John’s University history major.
Seggelke’s resolve to feed those in need and better his community extend well beyond the food bank. He has chaired Feeding America’s National Council, Hunger Free Colorado, Resource Area for Teachers and the boards for the Colorado Nonprofit Association and Hunger Related Events and is a past member of the Denver Healthy Food Access Initiative and SJU’s Strategic Planning Committee.
Seggelke now is board secretary for Senior Housing Options, Inc. and also coaches and counsels nonprofit executive directors.
