I have been a volunteer at the Kendall County Food Pantry for nearly three years. I started by handing food bags to the clients, but then moved into the office when I mentioned my office skills. By working in both of these areas I have come to realize how wonderful the clients are and how much "behind the scenes work" is done in order to serve our clients. I have also seen the need for the the work of the food pantry grow tremendously over the last three years. It never ceases to amaze me that not one person working at the food pantry is a paid employee. My eyes have truly been opened to the needs of my community by donating my time to the food pantry.
