Doing More Together
We’re so excited to share that Link2Feed is integrating our operations with our strategic partner, KidKare, a child care software provider with a complimentary product to our CACFP/SFSP platform.
Link2Feed’s focus will remain in food banking, while leveraging KidKare’s 20+ years of experience with CACFP/SFSP.
Our President, Emily Branton, will continue to manage operations at Link2Feed. Georgine Muntz will become the CEO of both Link2Feed and KidKare and will work with Emily to support Link2Feed’s growth and social impact.
Emily shares, “When Georgine and I met last year, our conversation focused on one question: If Link2Feed and KidKare can do so much separately, how can we do more together? I was immediately taken by her commitment to collaboration and passion for impact work.”
As leaders of companies working primarily with nonprofits and government program sponsors, Emily and Georgine believe joining forces ensures long-term sustainability and a depth of resources to benefit our clients.
“As a social enterprise supporting the front-lines of hunger relief, we believe our sustainability and growth are critical to achieving our social mission and supporting the mission of our clients,” says Branton, “We see this expansion of our partnership with KidKare as the natural next step in our work.”
The operational teams of both companies (account management, customer support) will run independently, so customers will continue to work with Link2Feed as they do now.
Attention will be focused on integrating the Finance and Human Resources functions to find efficiencies in administration and enhance advancement opportunities for existing staff.
The teams started working as referral partners in September and are thrilled about this natural evolution of the partnership. We will continue to refer customers to one another and a more formal announcement about opportunities for CACFP/SFSP providers, including mutual product enhancements, will be coming this spring.
You will have the chance to meet Georgine and some of the KidKare team at the Policy Conference in DC, The National Child Nutrition Conference in Atlanta and the Feeding America Leadership conference in Louisville.
Thank you everyone for your warm welcome of KidKare into the Link2Feed community, we look forward to another great year and to doing more together!
