Harvesters-The Community Food Network and the Kansas City Chiefs recently honored Kansas City Partner Wesley Fields by asking him to serve as the DiPardo Spirit Leader (drum honoree), before the start of the Kansas City Chiefs game on Nov. 29. The game was designated as the Chiefs Kingdom Food Drive game.
Being an advocate for the hungry for more than a decade, Fields’ experience as an attorney helped Harvesters secure resources that dramatically increased the food bank’s ability to provide food assistance to the region. In 2008, he became chair of the board of directors and led Harvesters to raise an additional $2 million, increase food distributions 25 percent and grow a children’s food program from serving 650 children to serving 10,000 children each week. Altogether, his leadership helped Harvesters provide more than 357,000 meals to the hungry.
Harvesters honored Fields with its 2012 Hunger Champion Award for his long-time support.
Fields concentrates his practice in the areas of public finance, corporate transactions and general business matters. He has nearly twenty years of experience in negotiating and preparing all documentation necessary for business joint ventures, mergers, consolidations, acquisitions and stock/asset sales. In addition, Mr. Fields has experience in general business representation and counseling, including negotiating and documenting various types of agreements (e.g., shareholder, employment and consulting, noncompetition and non-solicitation, stock option plans, and distribution, supply and licensing).
