In this captivating podcast episode, we delve into the remarkable journey of Claudia Bonilla Keller, CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank. Claudia's upbringing with two languages, her stepfather's invaluable advice on relationships, and her childhood love for music and dance set the foundation for her unique leadership style. Transitioning from the fashion industry to the nonprofit sector, Claudia's path led her back to Irvine and eventually to the helm of Second Harvest Food Bank. She shares insights on leadership's challenges, the distinction between food banks and pantries, and the unique 30-acre farm Second Harvest operates. With a profound commitment to community nourishment, Claudia's story inspires us to make meaningful contributions to the world.
