I volunteered with the NTFB at their warehouse and also at the Cedar Hill Food Pantry (conducting the annual survey). I especially enjoyed the experience at the Cedar Hill Food Pantry because I personally got to meet the people that actually pick up the food and benefit from this wonderful charity. They are everyday people experiencing life's hardships. The staff at the food pantry was so nice and went out of their way to make sure these people felt welcomed and got everything they needed. If I had more free time, I would volunteer at this food pantry. I plan to spend more time volunteering with the NTFB in 2010.

very nice, very attentive and made everyone feel accepted. The staff was organized and quick to help everyone who came through the door (at the Cedar Hill Food Pantry).

I have been a volunteer for NTFB for 4 years. I do sorting every other month at the Dallas facility through Lockheed Martin. This is always a fun time. Most of us joke we work harder at the food bank than at work. I do as many events as possible to help the NTFB; however, my favorite is the Taste of the NFL. Last year Lockheed hosted this at the Gaylord Texan. I was assinged to collect donations from patrons having their picture made with Cowboys cheerleaders. Everyone was very generous. The best story I heard that night was from a young teacher. She had made her husband come specifically because it was in support of the NTFB. She told me she teaches in an "inner city" school and was very aware of most of her students needing food. One thing peolpe don't think about is kids during summer. Sometimes the only food they receive is through school. I have had nothing but great experiences with the NTFB. They do a wonderful job!

I've attended the North Texas Food Bank twice this year with two large groups. Both experiences have been so incredible! This facility is so well organized, and does a great job of communicating the needs, purpose, process and expectations to all volunteers before the work even begins! I have also enjoyed receiving informational material, promoting donation and service opportunities. Hunger is a growing problem, and the North Texas Food Bank is facing it head on! I look forward to my next opportunity to give the gift of service! In the meantime, I spread the word, and try to recruit help for the food bank as often as I can.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Knowing that I contributed to feeding nearly 3,000 children for a weekend.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Absolutely fabulous! Randy and Vince were incredibly entertaining, and kept all the volunteers motivated, reminding us what good we were doing for the children. They are clearly, loyal to their cause!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Get closer to CLOSING THE GAP ON HUNGER!!!

Ways to make it better...

More volunteers were there, and there was more food to sort and give to those who need it the most!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Donations!!! With this ever increasing need, the call for donations becomes more and more important. It's a prescious gift, whether it be a cash donation, where the food bank can exercise its buying power, or through food drive donations.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I can't wait to return to the North Texas Food Bank to gift my gift of time!!!

I have only been once to volunteer at the NTFB, and that was October 2009. I will go back every chance I get. It was organized, efficient, and a joy to spend those four hours providing community service. The North Texas Food Bank has quite an efficient operation, and that was a well-managed four hours. Thanks, North Texas Food Bank, for all you do!!

I have coordinated two different team outings to volunteer at the North Texas Food Bank. Both times were very enjoyable. They briefed us on their mission (the video is a tearjerker!), what we were there to accomplish, and what the task at hand was. The "rules" included having fun while working, as well as various safety considerations. The work was simple enough, though very physically exhausting. Our first group was given a break midway through our shift, but the second time we were not and it made a BIG difference! I highly recommend bringing a bottle of water if you are coming alone or bring a cooler if you are bringing a group. The highlight is at the end, when they weigh the food you have packed and translate it into number of meals. It feels great to hear how our time made an impact!

Ways to make it better...

Breaks had been consistent. We needed a break mid way through our shift, to hydrate and take a bathroom break.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The economy is forcing more people to the food pantries at a time when less people are able to give. Word of mouth and spotlighting the need continually is critical.
