About the Event

Have you ever wanted the opportunity to speak directly with one of Des Moines' most well known and influential nonprofit leaders? Now is your chance! Please join YNPN Des Moines on Wednesday, May 11, as Aubrey Alvarez sits down with an intimate group to share her leadership experiences and answer your questions.   Aubrey Alvarez is co-founder and Executive Director of Eat Greater Des Moines, a nonprofit organization based in Des Moines. Launched in April 2013, Eat Greater Des Moines is cultivating and redefining a food system for everyone so that good food is not wasted; our neighbors don’t go hungry; everyone has easy access to healthy, locally produced food; and food is produced and transported using sustainable, environmentally friendly practices. Through collective action, advocacy, and innovation, Eat Greater Des Moines is empowering people and organizations to change how food is grown, who can access it, and where and how you can get it.

Aubrey is a graduate of the University of Northern Iowa (bachelor of arts in health promotion) and Drake University (masters in public administration). She is also a member of the board with Les Dames d’Escoffier of Greater Des Moines, Hunger Free Dallas County Coalition, Hunger Free Warren County, Regional Food System Working Group, and Wallace Centers of Iowa. She serves on the Ankeny Human Rights Commission and is also active in the Ankeny Community Network, OpportUNITY Food Insecurity Work Group, Iowa Hunger Coalition, and Food Hub Managers Working Group. She was selected as a 2019 Health Connect Fellow, 2020 Les Dames d’Escoffier Women of Purpose nominee, and is a 2015 graduate of the Greater Des Moines Leadership Institute. In her free time, Aubrey enjoys spending time with her husband and 2 young kids.  

Space is limited, so please register in advance to save your spot. Coffee and a light breakfast will be served.

This event is free and open to all. Big thanks to Drake University’s College of Business & Public Administration Graduate Programs for making the YNPN Morning Discussion Group series possible.
