Mendy is a native of Spartanburg, SC but has called Charlotte home for twenty years. She is a graduate of The University of South Carolina with a Marketing degree in Business Management. She spent numerous years in the corporate world before taking time off to raise her two children. Once her children were older, she spent many hours volunteering with organizations that help the homeless. Her passion for helping others has always been a vital part of her life, and is what led to her work with two friends to begin food rescue in Charlotte.
