Feed the Children Launches Division-Specific Transition Plan

Plan to enable global nonprofit to respond to ever-changing market conditions

Oklahoma City, – Feed the Children has rolled out a division-specific transition plan to further its objective to continue evolving into a world-class charity. The plan will enable the global nonprofit to respond to ever-changing market conditions.

“As one of the world’s leading anti-hunger organizations, we’re always motivated to make smart business decisions,” said Becky Graninger, chief development and marketing officer. “This plan will provide us with opportunities for even greater effectiveness, more efficient use of donor dollars and expanded programming to support those we serve.”

The transition plan affects 14 positions within the development and marketing departments at Feed the Children. As it structures for a stronger tomorrow, the organization is not decreasing its headcount but instead structuring to ensure it has new roles filled with the appropriate skillsets needed to expand its digital and social engagement, increase brand awareness and guarantee ongoing success.

“With a bold vision to create a future where no child goes to bed hungry, we maintain our commitment to be a robust and forward-thinking nonprofit entity,” said Travis Arnold, president and CEO.

Feed the Children expects to have its transition plan fully implemented by Sept. 6. Internal candidates will have the first opportunity to apply for the newly created positions. Any positions that remain unfilled by internal candidates will be posted to the company’s website for external candidate consideration.
