Longwood, FL. — U.S. Hunger (USH), a global leader in the fight against hunger, announced today that it has appointed Ezekiel Brooks as Chief Technology Officer (CTO), effective August 2, 2021.
“Ezekiel brings a profound level of expertise to the U.S Hunger team during a critical time for the organization. His experience and leadership will help further our mission of feeding families today and uniting them to a healthier tomorrow, as we expand our data and machine learning capabilities to better understand the true drivers of hunger,” stated board chairman, Dave Paul.
As a System Architect with more than 30 years of experience in the technology industry, Ezekiel is the perfect fit to align U.S. Hunger as a nonprofit technology firm. By providing data-driven solutions utilizing Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, Ezekiel is a technology warrior on the front lines of fighting food insecurity in the U.S. and the world.
With the upcoming launch of our SaaS platform, Ezekiel will help USH bring just-in-time impact reporting and geo-mapping directly to the nonprofit world. This new technology will allow local, regional and national nonprofits the ability to provide immediate transparency and impact reporting that show the social return on investments made by those individuals, corporations, foundations and philanthropic communities that fund so much of the nonprofit work done around the world.
“Here at U.S. Hunger, we are part of the next generation of nonprofits that are putting data driven service models front and center in our operations. By using Big Data, AI, and Machine Learning, we can analyze, understand, and react at lightning speed to attack root causes of food insecurity – and at the same time, serve clients with dignity and discretion,” says Brooks. “Each day, I realize that what we do at USH is special. We stand alongside families and individuals facing down giants like food insecurity. We dream of making food insecurity a thing of the past. I am certain our team at USH will put a dent in the universe for the better – and I’m honored to use my passion for technology to do good.”
