Chris joined the team in the summer of 2023. He is from the Flathead Valley and is thankful to have the chance to serve his community through this role. Above all Chris is proud of being a dad of two children. He enjoys all the amazing Montana activities and is convinced that he knows where the best hidden waterfalls are.

Matt Bertoia

Stephanie joined the Flathead Foodbank team in 2016 as a manager of the food bank’s thrift store, and when the store closed up, she hopped to the other side of the wall and started work in the office. She enjoys meeting and getting to know the clients that come to the Flathead Food Bank and enjoys knowing that she plays a very small part in helping to feed her community. Outside of work, she enjoys the outdoors while hunting, camping, traveling, creating art and playing bagpipes with her husband.
