Alumna Borden leaving 'Meals on Wheels'; joining agency devoted to ending senior hunger

Enid Borden, AU Class of 1972, longtime president and CEO of Meals on Wheels Association of America, Alexandria, VA, is stepping down to join the National Foundation to End Senior Hunger in August. She will be serving in the same capacity.

Enid, a former member of the University Board of Trustees, spent 20 years at Meals on Wheels, growing it from a small trade association to a preeminent national charity.

Enid also serves on the Sesame Street Food Insecurity Advisory Committee and the American Society of Association Executive’s Key Philanthropic Organizations Committee.

Prior to her tenure at Meals on Wheels, Borden was deputy commissioner for policy and external affairs at the Social Security Administration and director of public affairs of the then-Office of Human Development Services within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Borden’s work has earned her recognition in “Who’s Who in the Media and Communication.”
