Pronouns: He/Him/His
Jake Erlich is the Director of Analytics at the Capitol Area Food Bank (CAFB) in Washington D.C. A firm believer in the power of data Jake seeks to inform the important work being conducted by food banks by making our work more efficient, more informative and more strategic. As the Director of Analytics, Jake works with every department at CAFB from Operations to Programming and Development to ensure they not only understand their own impact and effectiveness, but that they also place data at the center of their decision-making processes. Since the outbreak of COVID-19 Jake has been working to refine the food bank’s understanding of the impact COVID-19 has on food insecurity so that new program and county-level meal distribution goals can be determined. This work will enable CAFB to intentionally update our organizational strategic plans to meet the needs of the changing food insecurity landscape.
