The former head of a Huntington-based regional food bank has pleaded guilty to embezzling from the charity.
Fifty-seven-year-old Leigh Anne Zappin of Huntington admitted to taking more than $32,000 from the former Huntington Area Food Bank in 2012.
Zappin pleaded guilty Monday in Cabell County Circuit Court to one felony embezzlement count.
Sentencing is scheduled for June 19.
Zappin resigned her position as the food bank’s executive director in September 2012.
The food bank changed its name earlier this year to Facing Hunger Foodbank. It serves the needy in 17 counties in Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia.
