Special Representative McAuliffe will draw on her experience working in both the public and non-profit sectors to advance top foreign policy priorities. McAuliffe founded and chaired Virginia’s Council on Bridging the Nutritional Divide, which forged cross-sector collaboration to impact childhood nutrition and food access initiatives through public-private partnerships. McAuliffe successfully advocated for increased participation and funding for several programs to feed children in schools, including Breakfast after the Bell programs and initiatives that provided summer and after-school meals. She has served on the boards of FoodCorps, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and the Smithsonian Institution. Until recently, McAuliffe served as national policy advisor for Share Our Strength and the No Kid Hungry Campaign. She has also worked on public and non-profit boards to increase educational opportunity for military students and to promote national service.
