Joseph Mounger has been involved in the Genesee County nonprofit sector for his entire career. After attaining his bachelor’s degree from Central Michigan University in 2010, Mounger began working for the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, ultimately becoming the vice president of finance and operations. In his various roles there, he oversaw child nutrition programs, all financial components of the organization, capital campaign funds for the Hunger Solution Center and many aspects of water distribution in Flint.

During his four-year tenure, Mounger has expanded and diversified Goodwill programs. The organization’s revenue has increased 21 percent since 2018 and exceeded $21 million in 2021, creating long-term stability and solvency for the future.
