Aeon welcomes Second Harvest Heartland COO as new board member 

Aeon’s Board of Directors welcomed Second Harvest Heartland Chief Operating Officer Sarah Moberg as its newest member on August 23. Aeon, a nonprofit developer, owner and manager of almost 6,000 affordable homes in the Twin Cities area, is tackling the affordable housing crisis that lingers in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. Moberg’s decades of experience in organizational leadership, coupled with her passion for nonprofit work, makes her an exceptional asset to Aeon’s board. 

“I am honored to join Aeon’s trailblazing efforts to ensure everyone has a home,” said Moberg. “As a food banker, I see every day how thriving communities begin with the essentials, like food and housing. Showing up for one another is an acknowledgement that we’re all in it together.”

Moberg manages end-to-end sourcing and distribution of millions of meals at Second Harvest Heartland, an organization dedicated to ending hunger. She also develops programming to address hunger in collaboration with schools, clinics and senior care centers. Moberg spent 25 years at General Mills, last serving as Senior Director of Innovation, Technology and Quality prior to joining Second Harvest Heartland in 2021. She brings a global perspective to her work, having led teams locally as well as in Mumbai and Shanghai throughout her career. 

“Sarah’s wealth of knowledge in operations and nonprofit management makes her an exceptional addition to Aeon’s board. We are so glad to partner with her in addressing the affordable housing crisis,” said Melissa Downey, Aeon’s board chair. 

Moberg holds an M.B.A from the University of California Davis and a B.S. in chemical engineering from the University of Minnesota.
