Review for Foodshare, Bloomfield, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars

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.

Truly above and beyond - they really consider what they are doing to be a mission. Delightful group of people to spend time with!
