You are encouraged to attend the October luncheon of the Christian Business Network to hear BRIAN BURTON, president and CEO of Three Square.
Three Square is the only food bank in Southern Nevada. It serves the approximately 271,000 people – nearly 15 percent – in Clark, Nye, Lincoln and Esmeralda counties who are food insecure, defined as those who during the year don’t have enough food for a healthy diet and active lifestyle. To put that into real numbers, 46.3 million meals are needed each year to close the gap between the need for food and what is currently made available through federal nutrition programs and charitable organizations – and the average price of a meal in Clark County is $3.11.
Before taking the helm at Three Square, Brian served as executive director of the Wilkinson Center in Dallas, a non-profit agency that provides adult education training and food/emergency services to families. Brian’s professional expertise includes rapid organizational growth and development, program sustainability, diversified fundraising, community engagement and public policy work. He holds a Master of Divinity degree in Education from Southern Seminary, and MBA from Louisiana State University and a BA degree from Ouachita Baptist University.
