Reviews for Lifenet4families | The Cooperative Feeding Program

Rating: 4 stars  

If you are looking for a charity in South Florida to allocate your volunteer time and /or money, Cooperative Feeding Program (LifeNet4Families) should be the one you select! The Executive Director is most passionate about this organization. she leads by example and motivates volunteers, staff and Board to be caring and great advocates for their clients....all while working in cramped quarters and much of the year with limited funding.

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

seeing the smiles and hearing the "thank you's" from the many clients at the serving kitchen, the food pantry, the office.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find them more operating funds and use those funds to keep the shelves stocked with food and then help to enlarge their facilites.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

Life-changing

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Quite well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?

Definitely

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

Have more volunteers so they could be more pro-active on events vs. last minute haste.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Yes - made me more aware of the need for housing and feeding thehungry in our country - community!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2010
