The Matchan Nutrition Center has a Working-Board of 12 members, most of whom also work as volunteers at the kitchen. Although this is not a requirement, it does mean that they see the operation first hand, which makes it easer to determine what works well and what needs to change. The Kitchen Manager and the President of the Oakland County St. Vincent de Paul Society are automatically members of the Board as written in the Bylaws. The other members are voted on to the Board by the other members of the Board.
Many of the members are also Vincentians, meaning they belong to a Parish Conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and are familiar with the mission and visions of the Society as a whole.
