Why do you volunteer?

Lauren ZargariI am so thankful for the wonderful volunteers here at Second Harvest, and that I get the opportunity to hear about their hearts for the hungry. So many set aside time in effort to fight hunger, and that is what makes this community so great.

I met Lauren Zargari a few weeks ago and it was her first time at the food bank. She said, “I think its important to give back to the community and help anywhere you can. It was really eye opening when I got here because I was educated on what is going on in our community and how many people are actually in need.”

Lauren helped package meals for the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP).  She said she specifically picked that act of service because she wanted to help with feeding children.


Brice PerryAnother volunteer I met named Brice Perry said, “I came to Second Harvest to serve the community. Today I am in the Production Kitchen helping package meals for kids. It has been great to be a part of the good that goes on in this organization.”

It was awesome getting to know Brice and hearing about his hope for kids this summer. He was such a great help to us and so eager to be of service.

Thank you Lauren and Brice for your willingness to serve your community and specifically for joining the fight against childhood hunger. You are hunger heroes and we appreciate you. For more information on how you can get involved visit: www.FeedHopeNow.org
