We are a volunteer led organisation. Meet our leadership team.
Volunteer Chair, Director
I have been an active volunteer for most of my life. In recent years, I have become a "food whisperer", having established the nourish progarm at Temple Beth Israel and taking on the chairmanship of Mazon Australia. During the recent lockdowns I have delivered food parcels for Souper Kitchen and served takeaway meals at Sacred Heart Mission. I also made many loaves of banana bread for the Project Dignity Crisis Relief program. Scrabble is my other passion, with many lockdown hours spent playing it online.
Joanne Loewy Irons
I am a non-practising lawyer by choice, volunteer by design. I volunteer for a number of not-for-profit organisations with my strength being in governance and interest being in engaging with others and encouraging all to give of their time in a meaningful way to build stronger and kinder communities.
I am a Jewish immigrant originally from Argentina. I exercise my professional Business and IT skills, with a unique Argentinian Yiddishe Momme twist. Volunteering is my second nature, and with very scarce time as a mother, wife, dog lover, interior designer, year level coordinator and, of course, my daily work in the corporate and non- profits sectors, I have always found time to make the world a bit better.
I know I can support the real heroes in the pantries and kitchens, by lifting the administration and operational challenges the organisation has.
