After 13 years with Food for the Hungry (FH) Canada, and over five years serving as our President and CEO, Shawn Plummer is saying farewell.
Shawn’s gentle and relational presence will be missed! His leadership guided FH Canada through seasons of growth, major change, and the uncertainty we all faced during the global pandemic. We are so grateful for his integrity and heart.
While we are sad to see Shawn go, we are excited for what lies ahead for him—and for FH Canada! We are thrilled to introduce Musu Taylor-Lewis as FH Canada’s next President and CEO as of June 1st. Musu and Shawn recently sat down for a virtual conversation to share their passions for FH and their hopes for the future.
Shawn, how did you experience your time as President unfolding?
Can you tell us more about that process of discernment?
Musu, tell us what brought you to FH.
How did you feel when you were extended the invitation to your new role?
Shawn, tell us where you see new opportunities for FH Canada.
Musu, where do you want to take FH Canada and its work in partner communities?
Musu, what would you like to say, as you prepare to launch into this role for FH?
Musu was born in Edmonton, AB, to Sierra Leonean (West Africa) parents. By her early 20s she had lived in seven cities on three continents. Such a cultured upbringing forms the basis of her interests, and fires her passion for international development. She lived in BC for over two decades, where she and her husband raised their family. She has deep roots and a wide community in western Canada. Currently Musu and her husband live in Aurora, ON.
Musu most recently worked with the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, where she directed communications, fundraising, and public engagement since 2018. This was where she solidified her convictions to work with the global Church. She is also a member of the taskforce on accountability on the anti-racism framework for the international cooperation sector in Canada.
