Used SHARE when I was freshly divorced with a small child. I loved the feature that they required volunteer work, which we had been doing anyway. At the distributions, we went early to help load the boxes. My five year old was able to be the "box getter," bringing empty cardboard boxes as the other volunteers needed more. It was a fun group activity, and she was impressed with how fast the group got all the boxes ready to go working together.
She still has a good work ethic.
The meat selections were kind of nasty (hence four stars) but the vegetarian pack was good.
When my daughter got older, we went to the warehouse to pack bags. "Okay now, we're doing oranges, put six in each bag, now the potatoes are coming..." At the warehouse, nice church ladies served hot soup or chili to the volunteers and it was a nice (cheap) social experience for us.
