Christi Skibbins has been named executive director of the Elderly Nutrition Program/Meals on Wheels of Yolo County, board chairman Deborah Glaeser has announced.

The mission of the organization is to nourish and enrich the lives of individuals in Yolo County with emphasis on those age 60 and older, by providing nutritious meals to active and home-bound people, thereby promoting their health, well-being and independence. Seniors have lunch at four congregate meal sites in the county, and volunteers bring lunches to more than 1,100 home-bound seniors on 23 delivery routes.

Skibbins’ predecessor is Nicki McCabe, who has served for the past six years. After a long career in the social services and nonprofit arenas, she is retiring and plans to travel with her husband, Tom.

Skibbins comes to the Elderly Nutrition Program with more than 25 years of experience in nonprofit organization management in Davis and the Napa Valley. Most recently, she worked in sponsorship development for the Davis Farm to School program and as executive director of the Davis Chamber of Commerce.

She was the founding executive director of a nonprofit after-school care center in Napa County and was executive administrator with the team that built and opened COPIA: The American Center for Wine, Food & the Arts.

Her volunteer work includes many years with Soroptimist International, various local political campaigns, ongoing involvement in two sister-city relationships and ongoing service in the areas of children’s issues and food scarcity.

“We’re so pleased to have Christi leading the organization, and the entire board is looking forward to working with her,” Glaeser said in a news release. “She brings so much great experience and enthusiasm to the job, and the seniors in our program will greatly benefit from her leadership.”

Added Skibbins, “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to lead such a vital program for so many folks who need it, right here in my own community. It will be a big job, particularly with government contributions declining and the number of seniors increasing with each passing year, but I relish the challenge and will be a fierce advocate for the program.”

McCabe and Skibbins have been working together during the transition throughout June. McCabe officially retired Friday.
