Review for Adopt-A-Family Local Foods Connection, Iowa City, IA, USA
I have volunteered with Local Foods Connection for the last three years. I was drawn to the organization because they are the only group I know of that works to connect low-income individuals with fresh, local, organically produced vegetables and fruits, while educating families about farming, food, and the land. I have seen firsthand the astonishing amount of work that goes into this all-volunteer organization. I would encourage anyone who can to devote some time to LFC to help them fulfill their mission of providing fresh, local produce to people in need. There is always a need for extra hands in the office, on farm days, and for community events. LFC, thank you for your hard work in making our community a more just and welcoming place to live. I have seen firsthand the difference that LFC makes in client families' lives.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
that I can see the ways in which my volunteer effort contributed to the physiological and emotional health of our community.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
passionate, outgoing, enthusiastic, committed, hard-working, and kind.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
make the world a better place, one locally produced organic vegetable at a time.
Ways to make it better...
I had more time to give.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
a lack of human power! Please consider contributing to LFC's efforts.
