Somervell County Food Bank now PAYING their Directors instead of buying more food!

17 May 2019 at 6:21:43 PM

I used to run the Somervell County Food Bank for about 3 years. In fact when I was the Executive Director I brought it out from under the Methodist Church and made it its own 501(c)(3) not for profit-entity with the IRS. I never requested nor wanted any money for doing the job. 

Now I was looking for something else on the IRS site and ran across the current Somervell County Food Bank board paperwork on file with the IRS.
By the way there are 76 registered non-profits with the IRS with Glen Rose as their City, 

Back to the food bank registration: 

The 990EZ form that was filed and signed by the food bank Treasurer Jeff Harris.

2016 -
2017 -

Donations: $51,521
Salaries: $12,000
That $12,000 is divided up between $6,000 to Director Teresa Rowan and $6,000 to the Executive Director Debi Bly.
So 23% of ALL donations to the Somervell County Food Bank went to pay people that are supposed to be volunteers.

Donations: $53,596
Salaries: $11,500
That $11,500 is divided up between $2000 for Teresa Rowan Director who resigned that year and Debi Bly Executive Director $9,500.
So 21% of ALL donations to the Somervell County Food Bank went to pay people that are supposed to be volunteers.

Maybe the Somervell County Food Bank Board of Directors should rethink paying people that should be volunteering, it could have an impact on your donations in the coming year if 1/4 of all that people give goes into the pockets of the Directors instead of buying fod for the hungry.

Oh and by the way they never got permission from the IRS to rename or do business as the name 'Papa's Pantry' (where did they come up with that rediculous name anyway?). They should consider they need the IRS permission to use a different name and go back to the official name Somervell County Food Bank that was approved.
