MFB Indiana hires new Executive Director

Midwest Food Bank is pleased to announce the hire of Marcie Luhigo as the Executive Director for the Indiana division. She will replace retiring Executive Director John Whitaker.

Marcie brings nearly 20 years of nonprofit human services experience to MFB. She most recently served as the Director of Development and Communications at Horizon House in Indianapolis. 

"Marcie is a values-driven leader who fully embraces the MFB missions, values, and vision," says Eric Hodel, CEO of Midwest Food Bank. "Her nonprofit leadership experience equip her to lead MFB Indiana."

As Executive Director, Marcie will ensure MFB programs are executed with efficient use of facilities, employees, and volunteers. She will also manage budgeting, fundraising, community engagement, and other requirements for not-for-profit operations. The transfer of responsibilities will take place between April and June. 

"I have watched Midwest Food Bank grow over the years and serve so many Hoosiers," says Marcie. "I'm ecstatic that God allowed me to join such a phenomenal team."

John Whitaker

John will continue his service at MFB through September. During that time, he will be transitioning duties to Marcie and planning the division's fall fundraiser.   

"I have been blessed to serve at Midwest Food Bank Indiana for fourteen years," says John. "Throughout my tenure, I have seen God's hand at work in many areas of this ministry." 

Marcie's family are big supporters of her work. She, her husband, Lameck, son Stuart, and daughter, Lily, reside in Greenwood and love living on the Southside of Indianapolis. 

"I enjoy coffee, documentaries on PBS, chaperoning my teens' friends groups, beach getaways, F1 Racing, and cheering for Stuart and Lily in their sports and activities," says Marcie.

Please join in welcoming Marcie to the MFB family.
