JP’s Community Servings Names Four to Board of Directors
Jamaica Plain-based Community Servings recently announced the election of four new members to its Board of Directors. Community Servings is a nonprofit provider of medically tailored meals and nutrition services to individuals and families living with critical and chronic illnesses. The new board members are:
• Dr. Aretha Delight Davis, a physician, former attorney, and CEO of ACP Decisions, a nonprofit that helps families make informed health care decisions;
• David Farwell, an executive vice president at Citizens Bank overseeing commercial banking, including the restaurant finance practice;
• Mehrdad Noorani, a former Harvard University Advanced Leadership Fellow and founding partner of the independent investment fund Global Infrastructure Partners; and
• Malisa Schuyler, vice president of government affairs at Beth Israel Lahey Health, an integrated healthcare system expanding access to care throughout Eastern Massachusetts. “Each of these individuals brings a wealth of experience and an abundance of passion to our Board of Directors,” said David B. Waters, CEO of Community Servings. “They will play a critical role not only as we continue to expand our services but also as we tackle the many challenges that Community Servings and the people we support have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
The new board members began their leadership roles with the Community Servings Board of Directors on July 1.
