dave newman

Founder & Executive director

Dave is the founder of Operation Lunchbox; he began this organization in 2015. His passion for feeding kids began when he was a kid. Dave grew up in poverty and experienced hunger as a child. He knew at a young age that he did not want other kids to have to endure what he did. So, he decided that when he got older, he would devote his life to feeding kids. Through his experiences he developed a passion for charitable work and wanted to ultimately come up with a solution to end hunger. Dave started this organization to put an end to hunger but what he is doing is providing people with a better quality of life.
