Congratulations to Mark Ellsworth,our Web Development Coordinator, on his retirement after 10 years at The Idaho Foodbank! We appreciate all of Mark’s hard work to advance The Idaho Foodbank’s mission and we wish him the best of luck in this next phase of his life. Before his retirement, Mark answered a few questions about himself:

Before working at The Idaho Foodbank, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?

I had this great job working for the State of Idaho’s Tourism Development Division. For three years I drove around the state in a 1979 Buick taking pictures and maintaining 10 visitor center computer kiosks that were at all these cool places.

What is your WHY, why did you work at The Idaho Foodbank?

Helping people is where it’s at, and this is a great organization because that’s what we do. I always loved telling people where I worked.

What is your favorite line from a movie?

“You’re really going need a bigger boat.” – Martin Brody, in “Jaws”
