Mark Peiffer, RPO
Mark is a young nonprofit professional who is motivated to help farmers and families in need and contribute to the betterment of his community. He moved to West Virginia one decade ago, fell in love with the people and mountains, and has called it home ever since. He brings a variety of nonprofit experience to his Program Manager position at Community Markets Inc. as well as the curiosity needed to dig into problems and find solutions through resourcefulness and collaboration. He believes that each community has the ability to feed itself and build its own wealth but must make a choice to invest in local businesses and farms. Mark envisions communities throughout West Virginia that grow enough food to feed each family, especially food insecure families, and have excess food to export to nearby communities. Mark lives in Jefferson County, West Virginia with his wife and daughter.
