STAMFORD, Conn. -- With Thanksgiving just days away, the CEO of a major food bank has resigned in what is the latest development in the split of a local food bank from its statewide network, according to the Stamford Advocate.
Rob Levine, who took over leadership of the the Connecticut Food Bank in January, left his post about a week ago, according to the report.
Levine has been unpopular at The Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County in Stamford, since making what it said were unjust demands while negotiating a contract renewal earlier this year, according to the Advocate.
The Stamford food bank opted not to renew its contract with the statewide organization, disrupting food distribution to charities the local food bank had worked with for decades, according to the report.
It was not yet clear how O'Leary's appointment would impact The Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County, which serves about 80 charities in Stamford and the surrounding area.
