FSD says in the article’s introduction, “As operations across the country face unprecedented challenges, the dedication, energy and innovation of those working hard to keep others fed has no doubt been a bright spot.”

The FDS article features young professionals whose passion for the industry has garnered the notice of their peers.

In the article, the 27-year-old McWhelan talks about what he excels at, the biggest challenge he has overcome, his most valued trait in the workplace and what he would change about the industry.
