Correction: Feeding America-CEO story

October 2, 2018

CHICAGO (AP) — In a headline for a story Sept. 29 about a Chicago hunger-relief group naming a new CEO, The Associated Press gave an incorrect name for the group. It’s Feeding America, not Feeding American.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Chicago hunger-relief group, Feeding America, tabs CEO

The board of directors of Feeding America announced this week that Claire Babineaux-Fontenot has been named CEO

CHICAGO (AP) — A leading hunger-relief organization has named a new Chicago-based CEO.

The board of directors of Feeding America announced this week that Claire Babineaux-Fontenot will take over Oct. 1.

Babineaux-Fontenot has held various leadership positions in corporate organizations and in government offices.

Feeding America describes itself as the nation’s largest organization battling hunger. Its network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries provide 4 billion meals to people facing hunger in the U.S. each year.

Babineaux-Fontenot says her parents reared more than 100 children through adoption or foster care. She says many of those entering her home showed signs of malnutrition and says “the passion of my life (is) the fight against hunger.”
