Having long been a donor to Goodwill and other conventional channels, I tried Hallie Q. Brown and was astonished to find out how much of an impact my donated clothing and household items had directly on families right near us. It is good to know that every dollar and every item and every pound of food goes directly to people who need it at a local, community based organisation.

At Whole Foods Market, we really believe that not all calories are created equal, and are impressed by the work HQB is doing in not only bringing food to neighbors in need, but working to make sure that food is healthy and as nutrient dense as possible. From gathering surplus from area grocery stores, to working with farmers and community gardens, to hosting cooking classes and sharing recipes, the folks at HQB are contributing greatly the the overall health and vitality of our community.

I love to grow organic vegetables in my backyard garden, but often have too many tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans, etc. that all ripen at once. I love giving freshly grown organic produce to the Hallie Q. Brown Food Shelf where my harvest is used and appreciated.

I have been volunteering for HQB for years. They are wonderful people who really care about helping the community. Their food shelf has helped a countless number of people get back on their feet with dignity and thoughtful support. The work they do for their clients is invaluable!!

The Hallie Q. Brown Foodshelf not only provides clients with sustenance, they also bring attention to nutrition and sustainable agriculture. They look to increase awareness of good nourishment and our footprint on the earth. It's commendable to see a community organization led with a focus on wellness and global consciousness.

The Halle Q Brown food shelf has been housed in the lower level of the church that I attend for as long as I can remember. During my last tenure on the church council the executive board challenged the council to promote stronger ties between the church and the food shelf. We wanted to become more than a landlord and wanted HQB to feel like more than renters to the congregation. I decided to take up this challenge and have been working closely with their development coordinator, Josh. Josh is doing a great job with grass roots organizing, networking, and changing the expectations of the people served by the food shelf. He has focused on making sure that food shelf users are treated with respect and dignity and given not only help with physical needs, but also help with cooking and serving healthy foods that can be made with easily acquired ingredients. The experience has been very rewarding for me and has brought me closer to the community in which I worship and work.

The Hallie Q. Brown Center's food shelf doesn't just help people in need with food and clothing. They have gone out of their way to make their community center part of the movement towards local and sustainable food for all. By working with co-ops, natural foods stores and farmers, they have been able to get the best possible food for their clients and support changes towards a more sustainable planet. Kudos to the HQB Center for being a leader! From Mississippi Market Co-op
