Natia Barnett

Program Expansion Manager

Natia joined Lakeview Pantry in February 2022 as the organization’s first Program Expansion Manager. She joined from her own nonprofit, Village Minds, which she started in 2020 to support low-income families in the wake of the pandemic and civil unrest in communities that were already struggling.

Natia’s relationship with Lakeview Pantry began when her organization was introduced via a Pantry board member, which resulted in the Pantry supplying much-needed produce and dry goods that Natia and Village Minds volunteers delivered across the city every Saturday. Natia, a Lakeview Pantry Feeding Hope Honoree in 2021, jumped at the opportunity to join the Lakeview Pantry family as a full-time employee.

In her spare time, the proud mother of three enjoys crafting, spending time with loved ones and enjoying our beautiful city.

Lakeview Pantry Exists Because of the Support of Our Neighbors.

With multiple food distribution programs that deliver more than 2.8 million pounds of food to our neighbors each year and social services that help clients achieve independence, Lakeview Pantry aims to end hunger for good. Make your impact today!
