SOUTH BEND — Milton "Milt" Lee, who has been serving as executive director of Michiana YMCA’s Urban Youth Services, has been named executive director and CEO of the Food Bank of Northern Indiana.
The announcement was made Wednesday by the food bank’s board of directors.
Lee is a native of the Michiana area and currently resides in South Bend with his wife, Kate, and two sons, Cooper and Isaac. He is a graduate of South Bend Washington High School and Ball State University.
The food bank has been without a chief since CEO Lisa Jaworski suddenly left in early February, which the board described as a "mutual agreement" in a written statement.
Erv Picha has filled that role since the beginning of March, about 20 or so hours a week.
Lee has been employed by The Michiana YMCA since 2007, first as director of membership and later as executive director of Urban Youth Services.
