The National Restaurant Association announced that Phil Kafarakis, chief Innovation & member advancement officer, has been elected to the Meals On Wheels Association board of directors.

"Phil's extensive experience in the food industry enables him to bring a unique and critical perspective to our Board of Directors," Meals On Wheels Association Board Chair Vinsen Faris said in a news release. "We are most appreciative to him and the National Restaurant Association for their willingness to contribute his valuable time to volunteer service for Meals On Wheels' benefit."

Prior to the NRA, Kafarakis was VP, Food Service for McCormick & Co., where he was responsible for the launch of the McCormick for Chefs marketing platform. His background also includes senior roles with Cargill Incorporated, Aqua-Novus Corporation, Jones Dairy Farm and Kraft Foods Inc.

While the Meals On Wheels Association Board has historically been made up of senior nutrition leaders from programs across the country, a change to its bylaws in 2013 sought to diversify the leadership to also include experienced individuals from other sectors. Kafarakis is the first to be added as a result.
