25 Women in Leadership: Claire Crone

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Claire Crone is the Program Director of Sophia’s Kitchen.

Under her leadership she has grown this non-for-profit from 50 volunteers serving approximately 100 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches a day to 220 volunteers serving up to 700 warm balanced meals a day. Many of the clients who come to Sophia’s Kitchen have lost jobs, some are drug dependent and others are struggling with mental health issues.

Over the years Sophia’s Kitchen has evolved and answered the needs of the community. They provide 1000 Christmas food baskets annually, serve hundreds of Thanksgiving dinners and offer a warm escape during cold weather.

Sophia’s even offers a food pantry, pet food pantry and a Little free Pantry for weekend needs.  Her favorite saying is “We will serve whatever God gives us.” And through the grace of God, Claire’s efforts and generous donors Sophia’s Kitchen has been able to provide.

Let’s welcome Claire to the 25 Women in Leadership.
