Most Persevering Leader:
Mel Gosselin

When she started at the New Hampshire Food Bank, 12 years ago, it was situated in a tight space in downtown Manchester with a network of pantries that served about 65,000 people. Now, thanks to Executive Director Mel Gosselin’s leadership, the food bank is housed at a 60,000-square-foot facility on East Industrial Park Drive that serves 130,000. Mel’s experience opening Walmart stores and working as a supervisor in the manufacturing industry has transitioned nicely to running a tight ship at the NH Food Bank. Her expertise and watchful eye is even more necessary as retailers gain tighter control over their inventory and the organization develops different methods to feed the people of New Hampshire.
