Honoring Lucy Bush Carter and her 35 Years of Service

Lucy Bush Carter was looking for something to do with a toddler in tow so she volunteered to deliver meals for Friendship Trays. Little did she know that this would become a lifelong calling. Now, after 35 years of dedicated service, first as Executive Director of Friendship Trays and since May as Director Emerita of Loaves & Fishes/Friendship Trays, Lucy is ready to spend time with other children in tow – her grandchildren. Over the past 35 years,she has been a steadfast and resolute shepherd for all of us and we know she will continue to be a trusted advisor, friend and advocate as she enjoys her well-deserved retirement.

To honor the legacy and example Lucy leaves for us, we are sending out a call to action to the community. In true selfless Lucy fashion, she has asked that any recognition of her retirement be as a gift to benefit the organization. Lucy dedicated the last 35 years to ensuring our neighbors had a warm meal served with a friendly smile. It is now up to us to ensure that this service continues for the next 35 years. A gift honoring Lucy will benefit the endowment to ensure the mission of feeding neighbors for generations to come.
