Montgomery County, Texas – Lindy Johnson has recently joined the Montgomery County Food Bank (MCFB) as the Director of Development.
In her role at the Montgomery County Food Bank, Johnson will oversee donor relations as well as manage all fundraising initiatives. Among her responsibilities, she will act as the staff lead to the MCFB Development Committee along with Committee Chairman, John Christianson, Vice President of Corporate Communications of Anadarko. Community relations will also be a vital component of Johnson’s position.
She joins the MCFB with years of extensive experience in leadership and fundraising capacities, most recently at Interfaith of The Woodlands as Senior Manager of Publications, focusing on communicating a nonprofit’s organizational mission. As a professional and volunteer, she has also given her time and leadership to multiple successful community initiatives.
“Lindy has an impeccable reputation for her leadership qualities, drive for success, interpersonal relationships, and working well within a team,” stated Allison Hulett, MCFB President and CEO. “Her calling card, however, is in the art of building relationships as she is truly gifted in that capacity. Lindy has a huge heart for our mission, and I am delighted to have her as a part of the Montgomery County Food Bank leadership team.”

She has lived in Montgomery County for 25 years and currently resides in The Woodlands with her husband and two sons.
“I am honored to join the team at the Montgomery County Food Bank,” she shared. “As our county continues to grow, so will the need. I look forward to using my passion for serving and helping others to make sure this vital community food bank can meet that increased demand. No person should wonder where their next meal is coming from, for themselves or their family.”
Montgomery County Food Bank began in 1985 as a door-to-door operation run out of car trunks by a small group of volunteers wanting to serve those in need in their community. Throughout the past 30 years, generous donors and volunteers have built it into an organization capable of distributing over 10 million nutritional pounds of food annually. The Food Bank also hosts mobile food distributions, offers nutritional education programs, emergency assistance in the time of a disaster or crisis, and provides meal programs for children and senior citizens.
Montgomery County Food Bank is 501(c)(3) chartered by the state of Texas and is a member of the Texas Food Bank Network and Feeding America. Its headquarters is located at 1 Food For Life Way in Conroe, near Hwy. 242 and I-45, just north of The Woodlands.
