Executive Director, Shirley Schofield

Shirley Schofield began working at the Food Bank of North Alabama in 2014 as the store donation coordinator. In this role, she served as a liaison between the Food Bank and the stores that regularly donate product to the Food Bank. Most recently, Shirley became the Food Donor Director, where she continued to help the more than 75 stores in the retail donation program manage their individual donation process. Shirley helped grow our grocery store donations to over four million pounds of food a year and was instrumental in our achievement of the highest food safety score in the nation among food banks. Shirley took on the role of Interim Executive Director in September 2016, and was promoted to Executive Director in January 2017.

Before joining the Food Bank, Shirley had a successful career as a journalist. She started as a reporter covering education in Mississippi. She later became an editor and worked in newsrooms in Florida and California. Shirley’s roots are in South Alabama, and she graduated from Auburn University.
