Feed My People
November 10, 2010
I have volunteered in the food pantry at Feed My People for a few years since I retired from teaching. The number of people needing food assistance has grown a great deal since I started. We used to finish at around 12:30 PM and now it is around 2:00 Pm although another day was added to the food distribution schedule.
It is so heartwarming to get in donations of food from people and organizations. You should hear the cheers from our Tuesday bunch of workers when we get cereal, or how greatful we are to get meat, eggs, milk or produce from the grocery stores.
I wish to thank those individuals, organizations, stores, and businesses who donate. I see the look in the peoples eyes and the smiles on their faces when I deliver a basket to them. I wish you could see it too, because it is your caring that has put the smile there.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
realizing that there are so many wonderful people out there who want to help people in need.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
give out simple recipes to the clients to help them stretch the food we give them (example rice, bean, or pasta dishes).
