The Board of Directors of Food For The Poor (FFP) - Jamaica has announced the appointment of Mr. Andrew Mahfood as the Chairman of the organization’s ten-member Board of Directors.

His appointment follows the recent announcement that former Board Chairman, The Very Rev. Fr. Burchell McPherson, has accepted an invitation to sit on the Board of the Directors of Food For The Poor Inc., located in Coconut Creek, Florida.
Fr. Burchell gave FFP-Jamaica seven years of invaluable service, during which he was instrumental in guiding the organization in its mission of catering to the social and spiritual needs of the less fortunate.
“My tenure at FFP as Chairman has been a very rewarding one. I was able to take on some of the challenges and overcome them with God’s help,” said the former Chairman, adding, “I wish for my successor all the best and whatever I can do to help the organization in the future, I will make myself available.” 
Similarly, Mr. Andrew Mahfood has been volunteering his service to Food For The Poor - Jamaica for more than seven years as a Board Member and Chairman of the Audit Committee. 
Mr. Mahfood brings to the position of Chairman years of experience in management and leadership. He notes: “On behalf of the Board of FFP Jamaica we congratulate Father Burchell on his appointment to the FFP Florida Board and thank him for the seven years he served as Chairman of FFP Jamaica. I am humbled by the opportunity to serve as Chairman of this incredible organization. It is our Board’s dream that together with our parent organization FFP Florida, Corporate Jamaica, the Government of Jamaica and other international relief organizations, we can expand and deepen our reach to eradicate poverty from Jamaica.”
The family of FFP-Jamaica is pleased to congratulate the Very Rev. Fr. Burchell McPherson and Mr. Andrew Mahfood on their new appointments.
