Volunteer Spotlight: Meet Sarah!

Volunteer Spotlight: SarahSince July of last year, Sarah has been volunteering her time at the food bank. In that time, she has been a tremendous help in several areas.

Sarah helps sort donations when needed, but  is also a frequent face in our Production Kitchen where she helps to create meals for children attending Head Start Programs. She has been instrumental with keeping our cooler area in order and stocked, as well as providing instruction to new volunteers helping out in this area.

“I’m currently looking for employment, so in my off time I like to keep busy and help out at the food bank,” Sarah said when asked why she volunteers. “I love the people here!

Sarah has volunteered close to 300 hours since July of last year. That is $7,000 saved that can go to feeding more of our neighbors in need because Sarah chose to volunteer her time at the food bank. It goes to show how important volunteers are, and why we couldn’t do what we do without them.

Thank you Sarah for being a Hunger Hero for our community! If you are interested in volunteering, find out more at www.feedhopenow.org/ways_involved_volunteer.
