As chief health systems and financial officer, Koffarnus will have many responsibilities. She will work with day-to-day operations such as overseeing several departments, including the grants office and technology team. 

In addition to Koffarnus' existing fiduciary planning and managing responsibilities as the nonprofit’s CFO, she will have an added focus of leading the food bank’s health and hunger work.

"Koffarnus has meticulously led Second Harvest through major growth and change," the organization said in a press release. 

She has also been influential in helping Second Harvest launch several social entrepreneurship revenue streams, including a full-service catering business, retail food product line and prepared meal contracts.
