New Albuquerque Site Director
Please meet Brittainy Mullins, our new Site Director in Albuquerque! If her name sounds familiar, it’s because she is Kevin’s sister-in-law. Brittainy is ready to take over our operation and is excited to build our work out there. She was born and raised in the DFW area, graduated from The University of Texas at Arlington with a marketing degree and moved to Albuquerque in 2004 . After having two children, she fulfilled her dream of being a stay-at-home mom. While currently balancing her volunteer efforts at a local church and homeschooling her children, her passion for serving and helping others thrives. In her childhood years, her family was the benefactor of food benevolence programs. She expressed, “Now that I have a family of my own, I realize how lean my parents’ budget must have been. I’m excited to see the ruin of hunger in Albuquerque and feel Community Plates is just the key!”
The Numbers Don’t Lie
