Branna Still joined the SLO Food Bank team in June 2020 and is excited to be a member

of a phenomenal organization that offers relief to those who are finding themselves

in the most challenging situations.

Branna was born and raised in Missouri. After graduating high school, she studied at

the University of Missouri—Columbia (MIZZOU) while also serving in the US Army Reserve.

After a year-long deployment overseas and a six-month course at the Defense

Language Institute, she graduated from MIZZOU with a duel degree in International

Studies and Business, emphasis in Marketing. After living in a few different states and

working in various for-profit roles, Branna shifted her career in 2014 to fundraising

and community development for the American Cancer Society. After four impactful

years serving Monterey County communities, she followed the sunshine and landed in

San Luis Obispo. Branna was honored to join the Woods Humane Society as the Development

Manager and, after a month, her family grew by adding a sweet canine

stray found in Paso Robles. As the “normal day” in the life flipped upside down amid

the global pandemic, an opportunity to help those at risk of hunger came forth, and she was excited and grateful

to become part of the solution. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her family and fur babies, listening

to music, enjoying the great outdoors, and traveling the world.

Branna told us that 26% of households in SLO County do not earn enough to afford an essential cost of living and

1 in 6 children may experience food insecurity in the US this year! The SLO Food Bank serves over 31,000 individuals

each month. 28% are children and 25% are seniors. Community Service Chair, Sandy Cha, was pleased to present Branna

and the SLO Food Bank with a check for $500 to help families and individuals

during this holiday season.
