Nominated by: The Main Course O.G.
Tony Butler instantly becomes a mentor to everyone he meets. As a Board member of Heritage Radio Network, he continues to teach the team about justice, fairness, and public service. He has been on the network too many times to count, and is always fascinating to listen to. Tony has worked in the field of social service and community organizing for over 30 years. During this time, all of his work has been of a community-based nature. In June, 2005, Tony took the position as Executive Director at St. John’s Bread and Life. During his tenure, he worked to meet the growing need of emergency food in the community, provide those services with the greatest dignity, and develop strategies to reduce individuals and families need for emergency food. In June 2008, Bread and Life moved into a new $8,000,000 state-of-the-art facility; featuring expanded space, a digital choice food pantry, medical offices, a library, a non-denominational chapel, classroom, demonstration kitchen, and more.
