Staff report

Cindy Fink has been named the new executive director of Meals on Wheels of Rowan.

Fink previously served as executive director of the Granville County United Way and Granville Education Foundation.

She also has worked as regional director of marketing for two N.C.-based pharmacies, jobs in which she worked with senior living, nursing and assisted living communities.

Most recently, Fink was house director for the University of North Carolina’s Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority in Chapel Hill, managing two facilities and dining services for 185 members. Fink holds an MBA from the Bryan School of Business at UNC-Greensboro and an undergraduate degree from UNC-Chapel Hill.

Originally from Salisbury, Fink has recently returned home. Her mother was the longtime director of child nutrition for the Salisbury City Schools.

“My mother had a passion for feeding the children of this community,” Fink said. “Today, homebound senior citizens and disabled individuals are also faced with food insecurity. Over 200 individuals receive meals due to the effort of over 1,000 volunteers. Volunteers are essential to the mission of Meals on Wheels, and without them, we could not deliver meals across Rowan County every Monday through Friday. I am grateful to be joining an organization with such a committed group of volunteers.”

Residents of Salisbury and Rowan County are invited to meet Fink from noon to 8 p.m. March 1 at Morgan Ridge Railwalk Brewery and Eatery, 421 E. Lee St. Morgan Ridge is hosting a “Giveback” program in which 10 percent of sales will be donated to Meals on Wheels.

Meals on Wheels of Rowan is a nonprofit agency. Meals are provided at cost on a sliding scale based on ability to pay. Funding is provided by donations from individuals, businesses, foundations and a grant from the Rowan County United Way.

Client and volunteer applications are available through the agency website,; by emailing; or by calling the Meals on Wheels office at 704-633-0352.
