Feeding America San Diego announced new board appointments for the year.

Jan Lezny, vice president of IP business strategy for Qualcomm Inc., was elected chairman of the board. Gwendolyn Meyer, a local philanthropist and director of Aqualia Foundation, was named vice chair. And Dennis Mudd, the co-founder of both Slacker and Music Match, was named to the board.

The three new members take over following the departure of board chairman Troy Zander of DLA Piper, and board members Dan Blank of Social Venture Partners and Christian Waage, general counsel of Receptos Inc.

Founded in 2007, Feeding America San Diego is the area’s largest hunger relief group, distributing about 23 million pounds of food in the last year, the organization said.
