TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Rick Minor, the CEO of Second Harvest of the Big Bend, will be resigning from his position in September.

In a message posted on Second Harvest of the Big Bend's Facebook page, Minor said in part:

“For three years, I’ve been privileged to have led Second Harvest through an exciting time of growth, change, and impact,” said Minor. “We have increased food distribution by 86%, increased revenue by 54%, purchased our warehouse, and secured the funding necessary to purchase a much-needed backup generator. But most importantly, we have reduced food insecurity in the Big Bend for the first time in many years.”

Minor's official last day will be Sept. 6 and he said he's looking forward to spending more time with his two young daughters.

Minor assumed the role of CEO in Aug. 2016.
