Second Harvest Community Food Bank Blog

Gary Kincaid, Thankful for The Opportunity

This is the first of a three part blog series that will feature three of our retiring board members as they reflect on their time served with Second Harvest Community Food Bank.

Gary KincaidGary Kincaid has served on the Second Harvest Community Food Bank board of directors since July, 2005. He has held the positions of board vice president and board chair.

After retiring from Altec, Kincaid began volunteering at the Savannah Food Pantry. While there, he helped lead a successful fund drive. It was his success with this drive that led to him being asked to serve on the Second Harvest board.

“I was thankful for the opportunity,” Kincaid said.

During his time on the board, Kincaid has seen an increased need for services as well as increased distribution. He has also seen Second Harvest move into other communities and extend outreach across its 19 county service area. Kincaid says he was especially proud to see the transition process for Harvest House, Second Harvest’s on-site pantry, to Fresh Start, a nonprofit grocery store.

“I’m excited about the Harvest House transition,” Kincaid said. “It’s a great concept and will provide a more respectful environment.”

Kincaid was born and raised in Wichita, KS and moved to St. Joseph in the mid 1960s. Kincaid has been married to his wife Gail for 47 years and has two children. Jennifer, his daughter, has two children and his son Jeff has four children. Kincaid retired from Altec in 1998. In 2006, he started Kincaid Gardens where he sells plant markers.
