Though Claire Babineaux-Fontenot has most certainly built a successful career as a lawyer, finance and tax expert, it’s her current role as CEO of Feeding America that will arguably solidify her lasting imprint on our community for generations to come. Under her leadership, over this past year alone, the non-profit—which is dedicated to ending chronic hunger and combatting food insecurity in the United States—provided 6.6 billion meals to people in need. More specifically, her work has provided a critical lifeline to Black and Brown families who’ve been disproportionately affected by hunger in the U.S. Additionally in 2022, Babineaux-Fontenot made it her mission to visit every single member food bank in Feeding America's network, yet another way she leads by example. Encompassing both a passion for service and a commitment to her community, when Babineaux-Fontenot isn't working to reduce stigmas and create lasting impacts, she also volunteers and acts as a board member for several non-profits including Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children, the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, the National Urban League, the National Association of Black Accountants, and the Walmart Foundation, just to name a few.
