Farewell and New Beginnings for Steve

After a year and a half filled with unforgettable experiences and cherished relationships, I announce my departure from Matt Talbot with a mixture of sadness and excitement. Starting in July, I will become the Food and Beverage Operations Manager at the Lincoln Children’s Zoo. 

My time at Matt Talbot has been transformative. Working alongside dedicated staff, passionate volunteers, and inspiring volunteer teams, I have learned the true meaning of community and compassion. Every meal served, every hand extended, and every story shared has left an indelible mark on my heart. The support and camaraderie I have experienced here are unparalleled, and I will always treasure the connections I have made. 

As I embark on this new journey, I carry with me the lessons and memories from Matt Talbot. While my role will change, my commitment to service and community remains steadfast. I am excited about the opportunities ahead and look forward to contributing to the Zoo with the same dedication and passion. 

Thank you to everyone at Matt Talbot Kitchen and Outreach for the incredible journey. Your support, friendship, and unwavering dedication to our mission have been truly inspiring. Though I will miss you all, I am confident that our paths will cross again in this vibrant community.  

With heartfelt gratitude, 

Stephen Engel, Kitchen Manager
