Dan Eckhoff, A Visionary for Hunger-Relief

This is the second 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.

Dan EckhoffIn order to build hunger-free communities, Second Harvest Community Food Bank must rely on strong leaders who not only are visionaries for hunger-relief, but are also versed on sound financial strategies. As a retiring member of the Second Harvest board of directors, Dan Eckhoff made it his goal for over ten years to help Second Harvest build its critical budget reserves. 

“Financial strength is critical in nourishing people and sustaining those efforts,” Eckhoff said. “Building strong reserves also allow Second Harvest to serve the community during the most difficult times.”

Eckhoff began serving on the board in 1997. He left to pursue his Masters in 1999 but returned in 2000 and served until 2006. In 2007, he came back for his final round as a board member and served until June 28, 2012.

Eckhoff is originally from Mobile, Alabama, a place that is dear to his heart and where he plans to retire. Eckhoff’s professional life moved him everywhere from New Orleans to Milwaukee, but he’s spent the last 22 years in St. Joseph working at Missouri Western State University. The majority of his time at Western, he’s served as the university’s bursar. Eckhoff received his undergraduate degree in psychology from Missouri Western and earned his executive MBA from Benedictine College. Eckhoff loves to fish, read and spend time on the water.

Second Harvest would like to thank Eckhoff for his dedication to the organization’s vision during his time on the board of directors.
