New Board Members August 2021

Welcoming New Board Members

Citymeals is a lifeline for the homebound elderly and, this summer, we are happy to welcome new members to our Board of Directors who will help us continue and grow our mission: Camille Joseph-Goldman, Joshua A. Kazam, and Deborah Roberts. These new supporters bring diverse skills and expertise to help us advance Citymeals’ mission.


Deborah Roberts is a longtime friend of Citymeals, supporting our More Than a Meal fundraiser in 2020 and attending our annual Sunday Supper with her husband Al Roker. An award-winning journalist at ABC News, she serves as a Senior National Affairs correspondent and regularly reports for 20/20, Good Morning America, Nightline, and World News Tonight with David Muir. Roberts has been awarded a Peabody Award and multiple Emmys for her international and national coverage of hard-hitting issues. She comes to the Board with a generous enthusiasm for our mission: “I grew up with the understanding that we care for our neighbors as we care for ourselves. Citymeals offers me the opportunity to do just that,” says Deborah. “I am humbled to help make sure that my New York neighbors have healthy food and a friendly visit daily. What a privilege to be part of this vital organization!”


Camille Joseph-Goldman is the Group Vice President for Charter Communications, overseeing government affairs in the northeast. Previously, she worked in government for more than a decade, serving as U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s Director of Intergovernmental Affairs. She was then appointed New York City’s Deputy Comptroller for Public Affairs. Camille got her start in politics serving as field organizer for then-Senator Barack Obama and later went on to become a Deputy Director on President Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign.


Joshua A. Kazam is a co-founder and partner of Two River, which builds companies developing innovative technologies and therapies in the life sciences sector. He is also co-founder and director of Allogene Therapeutics and Kronos Bio. A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, he serves on the Wharton School’s Undergraduate Board.

We are grateful to Camille, Joshua, and Deborah for bringing their talents and dedication to the fight to end elder hunger.
