Cassie Olovsson

Director of Development

Food Recovery Network


Cassie Olovsson (she/her) is the Director of Development for Food Recovery Network (FRN), national nonprofit that works to combat climate change and end hunger by recovering perishable, surplus food from across the supply chain and donating it to feed people experiencing hunger across the U.S. Since joining the FRN team in 2018, Cassie has worked across nearly all areas of organizational development including program, communications, and fundraising. Today, as the Director of Development, Cassie uses her holistic knowledge of FRN’s programs and initiatives to direct all aspects of fundraising in support of FRN’s national college student-led food recovery mission and programming. Cassie is known for bringing energy and light into a space, leading with curiosity and always asking questions, and integrating feedback to increase personal and team performance. She graduated from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology. After venturing to Washington D.C. to start her career at FRN, Cassie has since then moved back to the California Central Coast where she now lives, plays, and explores alongside her partner, Aaron, and their puppy, Jade, while continuing to work remotely for FRN. When she’s not working or volunteering in her local community, Cassie is most likely to be found at the beach, her local thrift store, or an outdoor community yoga class.
