Meet our Leaders

At LOVE SERVE FEED, we are a family of people who love to serve our community.  We are a 100% volunteer army. There are no paid positions in our ministry because we want 100% of the money to go to the need.  Each one of us are answering a call to serve our community and be the hands and feet of Jesus. We have an amazing team of leaders and volunteers, so we'd like to introduce you to a few of us...

Chas Winckel

Founder/Managing Director

Building community by feeding people is not something I would imagined back in 2011.  Getting up every Saturday and preparing meals for people I didn’t know, I don’t think so!  Then it happened.  We launched our feeding ministry in November of 2012 and the rest is history.  We started with Round Rock ISD giving us a couple of test Saturdays and we have been at Hernandez every Saturday since.  Our first Saturday back in 2012 we served around 120 meals and we have peaked with about 1200 meals.  Our average Saturday we serve between 350 and 500 meals.  It’s really pretty simple.  We receive people just as they are; we feed them, hug them and listen to them just like family.  Bottom line is I love them and the environment that we have been able to create is more like a family reunion rather than just grilling burgers for the community.   We have the most selfless volunteers and greatest servants that I have ever been affiliated with.  The love that is there every Saturday can be felt but is so authentic to experience that it brings you back week after week.

Liz Issleib

Serving Coordinator/Advisory Board Member

Liz is a founding member of our community.  She was part of the initial planning and implementation of our Round Rock Ministry, and she has served faithfully ever since.  Liz has huge part of the success of our organization since the beginning. She has formed such a strong bond with other leaders, volunteers and people we serve and she goes out of her way to make people feel welcome and loved.  She runs the serving line with ease and she coordinates with other leaders and volunteers to make sure all needs are met each week.  She is such a faithful, loyal friend and volunteer, that we recently asked her to be an official Advisory Board Member, even though she's been in an acting Advisory role since day one.  We love her and are so grateful to have her on our team.

 

Pam Mawdsley

Serving Coordinator/Advisory Board Member

We met Pam years ago when she came to serve as one of the volunteers from Palm Valley Lutheran Church.  She has been a tremendous asset to us ever since.  Pam has such a huge heart for the Lord and for the people we are serving.  She is one of the most loving, supportive volunteers we have in the serving line.  Always with a sincere smile, she runs the operations of the table and helps train new volunteers who show up each week. She works with other leaders and volunteers to make sure the serving line operations are always functioning smoothly.  She has become such a valuable part of our community that she is now serving on our Advisory Board. We are so grateful for Pam and we love working with her.

Laurie Winckel

Founder/Administrative/Marketing Director

I can't believe it's been over seven years since Chas and I started feeding the Round Rock community.  We have grown to love our people so much.  Our leaders, volunteers and our families have become very dear to us.  We value everyone who has every come to serve, share, or partake of our meal and we look forward to many more years with these people.  The stories we hear from so many of our people are filled with God's love and grace in their lives as they walk through some amazingly difficult circumstances. Our volunteers serve selflessly and love unconditionally and we love doing life with them.  We have grown so much as leaders of this organization, yet in certain ways, we know it's only because of God's grace that we are even able to serve.  Sometimes we wonder how we could possibly make a difference, but we trust that God knows what He's doing and we will continue to show up each week and see what He has us do.  We just want to thank our leaders, our volunteers and our community for being such good and faithful servants.

Helen DiTommaso

Acquisitions Coordinator/Advisory Board Member

Helen has been serving with us for the past five years.  She started coming to our Hernandez serving location to bring her family for lunch.  Soon, we adopted her into our family and she started serving.  She has been invaluable to our community ever since.  Helen, her husband Dominic, as well as the rest of her family, have served tirelessly each week with our Saturday operations as well as our Sunday meat ministry.  As Acquisitions Director, she procures food, supplies, gathers materials and gets volunteers together for special events and holidays.
