Fulfill Food Bank on Thursday announced Triada Stampas will be its new president and CEO of beginning Dec. 1st. Stampas is a recognized thought leader in the anti-hunger community and has successfully shaped strategies to address hunger at the state, federal, and local levels.

Stampas comes to Fulfill from Community Food Bank of New Jersey (CFBNJ) where she served as a member of the executive team. She led across multiple departments at CFBNJ, spearheading the organization’s strategic development. Prior to CFBNJ, Stampas played a similar role in her senior position at Food Bank For New York City, where she successfully advocated for millions of dollars in public funds.
“Triada has a deep personal commitment to improving food security at the Jersey Shore. She is a recognized voice in the fight against hunger, and we look forward to building our team with her leading the way. We are confident the families, children, seniors, and veterans we serve are in the best of hands with Triada as our new CEO and President,” said Lauren Holman, board chair, Fulfill.
“During our nationwide search for a new CEO, we looked for someone passionate about delving into the roots of hunger and finding solutions to break the cycle of poverty. We also wanted someone with a demonstrated track record of fundraising and a history of collaboration with government entities and community organizations. We found all of that and more with Triada Stampas,” said Jeremy Grunin, board member and search committee chair, Fulfill.
