The San Luis Obispo Food Bank has initiated a search for its next leader after the organization's CEO departed earlier this month.

According to a press release, former CEO Kevin Drabinski left under "mutual agreement" the first week of January.

Adrienne Harris, a local nonprofit consultant located by the SLO Food Bank Board of Directors, will serve as interim director during the organization's leadership transition.

No further details about Drabinski's decision to leave were provided but he was thanked for his service by SLO Food Bank Board Pres. Steve Davis in the press statement.

"Kevin worked with integrity and did a number of wonderful things to help the organization over the years," Davis said in the statement.

Drabinski was selected by the Board of Directors in Feb. 2017 to head the organization.

The SLO Food Bank distributes food to 14,000 households and 30,000 individuals each month, according to its press statement.

The non-profit said it will focus this year on increasing efficiency, exploring new relationships, and expanding funding sources to meet growing demands for access to safe and healthy foods.
