Review for Community Food Share, Inc., Longmont, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I help with the Boulder Community Food Share. I go in once a week and put together food orders for agencies- like church groups. It is amazing to see how much food gets moved out of the Food Share each week. There is a large demand and this organization does a good job to fill the need. It is interesting to see how all the jobs get done with different volunteers coming in each day, people have to get trained in tasks and safety. It is very hectic some days and others there is nobody there to help out. Somehow the employees manage to keep it all under control and keep the food moving in and out. Overall it is a good experience, I have met a number of interesting people and get to help out the community.

I really enjoy the people I work with at CFS. The employees and the other volunteers make it a great environment. I get a great sense of accomplishment each week at how much food and goods that I am able to organize for pick-up. When I look at the stacks of orders that have been prepared, I appreciate CFS for how much they are able to accomplish- how many people they are able to help. It is incredible how much food they are able to distribute in a week. I feel like we are really making a difference in the community.
