Chris Ruggeri

Operations Coordinator

Chris joined the Centre Street Food Pantry in June 2022. He has spent more than 12 years working in the nonprofit field, serving in a variety of operational and administrative roles. He recently moved back to Massachusetts with his wife and two children and is thrilled to be back in New England. Before the move, he worked at the Ronald McDonald House in Durham, NC, where he managed a resource room at Duke Children’s Hospital and ensured patient families had access to food, lodging, and other vital resources while their child received treatment. In particular, Chris was struck by the impact food could have on the outlook and resolve of the people he served. This experience led him to the Centre Street Food Pantry, and the opportunity to help people get the food resources they need. In his free time, Chris enjoys spending time with his family, as well as playing basketball, running, and making pancakes for anyone who will eat them.
