lmoon

Lisa Moon is President and Chief Executive Officer of The Global FoodBanking Network (GFN), an organization that alleviates global hunger by developing food banks in communities where they are needed and by supporting food banks where they exist. Together, the GFN network of food banks rescues more than 940 million pounds of food annually and re-directs it to 7.1 million people in need.

Previously, Lisa served as Vice President of Global Agriculture and Food at The Chicago Council on Global Affairs, where she spearheaded a project that has become one of the leading global contributors to discussions around hunger and food security. There she conducted studies and policy dialogues on the role of agriculture in emerging economies, the nexus between agriculture and health, the pressures water scarcity and climate change will place on the global food system, and the importance of trade and food price volatility to social stability. Council studies informed the U.S. global food security strategy, the most recent U.S. food and farm bills, the 2012 G8 New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, and UN High-level Meetings on Non-communicable Diseases.

Prior to joining the Council in 2007, Lisa worked with the U.S. Department of Defense and the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, DC. She holds a Master of Arts degree in Security Policy Studies from George Washington University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in international studies, political science, and Spanish from Bradley University. She is on the community board of the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences, is a member of the Farm Foundation Round Table, is a Term Member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and is currently a David Rockefeller Fellow of the Trilateral Commission.
