I started volunteering at the Larchmont-Mamaroneck Hunger Task Force Food Pantry last year. I'm impressed by the group of loyal volunteers that show up every two weeks and the generosity of the community demonstrated by the various food drives. It's a rewarding experience helping neighbors in need.

The Larchmont-Mamaroneck Hunger Task Force is an incredible organization. Run by volunteers, it collects, packs and distributes food to the needy in the community (serving well over 1500 people) on a biweekly basis. Food is also distributed to the homebound. Not only does the organization provide a vital service for those who would otherwise go without, but the people that run the organization are the best! They regularly make you feel that your efforts--no matter how small--are key to their success. As a result, it is always a pleasure to help out

I've been volunteering for several years with this wonderful community organization. being skeptical at first, I am totally committed to the notion of selfless efforts on the part of a group of people coming together year after year to bring basic needs to families. what truly impresses me is that there is no arm-twisting or pleading necessary.. everyone wants to be there and if you can't make it sometimes, there are others who will pitch in happily. our clients often volunteer as well. This is an organization that has grown over the years but still feels small enough to bring everyone together. I feel priveleged to be a part of it.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing several clients whom i've come to know be in the community in new jobs that they've obtained, hopefully to be more self-sufficient, but also knowing that they can always come to us for help

It is not easy to find a volunteer opportunity that is fun, neighborhood oriented and well run that a family with ages spanning between 12-53 can enjoy and feel that we have helped those less fortunate in the community. For any family trying to give back or just give a little time rather than sending or donating money, the food pantry is a wonderful experience.

My kids and I have volunteered at the Larchmont-Mamaroneck Hunger Task Force for over a year now, and we love every minute of it! It is such a rewarding experience because of the other wonderful volunteers and the clients who rely on us. Although our numbers have increased over the past year, the clients are always smiling and thankful. Their dignity and gratefulness are an added benefit to the job. In addition, we have been amazed at the outpouring of community support. Every local food drive delivers an abundance of food. It's truly a heart-warming place to volunteer!

I have been volunteering for the food Pantry for many years. I speak Spanish and have the honor of greeting our clients and signing up new families. It runs like a well oiled engine...We respect our clients and I think they are as comfortable about receiving food as they possibly could. It is a place that I look forward to going to and feel so satisfied with the work I do there. I expect to be there for many years to come. The sad part is that our #'s are up 1/3...We feed anyone that is hungry and then direct them to their local pantry for the next time.

It is such a well run organization I feel like whenever I am there the time is very productive and well spent. The people there always take the time to talk to the volunteers about what their particular contribution is providing so it makes the experience much more gratifying. I have also volunteered with my children and it was a positive experience because they were really able to roll up their sleeves and help.

I have been volunteering at the LM Food Pantry for a few years. The organization is run extremely effectively and each and every packing goes error free. The volunteers are always there due to the great coordination of Sarah Edwards, Mary Davis ensures that each packing is smooth and efficient. It occurs to me each week, that less people would go hungry, if all organizatioins were run with such expertise.

This is a wonderful organization that continues to meet the needs of our neighbors. WIthout missing a beat, the Larchmont-Mamaroneck Hunger Task Force has been able to accommodate a significant increase in the number of its clients. And, it does so with a smile on the faces of the volunteers.

This is a very organized, and special way for absolutely anyone in our community to step up and help others in need who live just around the corner. Cheery faces and smiles abound as you literally get to touch the families you help. I found it to be an extremely rewarding experience.
