Foodshare
December 2, 2009

Have been a Foodshare volunteer for 8 years, and as a professional social worker I constantly refer needy clients to them, also. The staff is amazingly dedicated - to them, it's much more than a job, it's a mission. The 2,500 volunteers are incredibly involved and many serve more than one function. I am continually impressed that 95% of their budget goes directly to helping people.
