Q&A: Chief ‘problem solver’ reflects upon retirement

Throughout the pandemic, Lakeview Pantry has been fortunate to have Bill Thomas making many tough decisions on the fly. This Friday, Thomas, 65, is retiring after an impressive career spanning more than four decades in the food industry and nonprofit sector, including a 10-year run at Feeding America.

In the Q&A interview, Thomas reflects on his career, a changing food industry and his time at Lakeview Pantry during the pandemic.
