Speaker: Twila Lindblade - Executive Director of Galveston County Food Bank

Twila Lindblade has served as the executive director of the Galveston County Food Bank since March 2013. Prior to coming on board with the food bank, she was the communications and field director for Congressman Ron Paul, serving all of Galveston and Chambers Counties. Twila has also had several articles printed in local publications such as the Houston Business Journal, the Galveston County Daily News, the Scene Magazine and the Friendswood and Pearland Reporter News where she served as editor in chief for two years.

Non-profit work is not new for Twila. She has worked as a volunteer and fundraiser in her community for more than 10 years. She has worked with Interfaith Caring Ministries, the American Heart Association, the American Cancer Society, the Boy Scouts of America and several others. She was named Citizen of the Year in 2009 by the North Galveston County Chamber of Commerce.

Twila says that the passion behind the work she does stems from the importance of being a strong role model and example for her two children, Elise who is 5 and Zander who is 2. Twila has been married to her husband Glen for 10 years and Lindblade family live in Dickinson.
