Mike Lilley

Director of Programs and Partnerships

Mike began with the pantry as a volunteer in early 2020 transitioning to a part time distribution specialist and eventually Director of Programs and Partnerships in September 2022. He now plays a key role in the success of our many programs and the strength of our relationships with members of the community.

Mike comes to the pantry with years of leadership experience through the armed forces and the US government.

Mike’s strong belief in helping others is rooted in his active faith and participation in his church. Him and his wife Enza have three sons and two grandchildren and have lived in Salem for 5 years.

“I chose to pursue work at The Salem Pantry because it allows me to do good, seek justice, and pursue peace in our local community…We get to be part of something that is bigger than ourselves for the good of our neighbors.”
