Review for Community Kitchen Inc, Columbus, OH, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

One of my first volunteering experiences as an AmeriCorps VISTA, and other than me slicing up my finger... this Community Kitchen knows how to get things done & get people fed.

The atmosphere at the Community Kitchen is energetic and passionate. Everyone is there for a common cause, and it's infectious! I recommend anyone in the Columbus area volunteer here!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

feeding hungry people.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide them with more help and more food... they serve a big community.

Role:  Volunteer & Assisted with meal preparation and service.
 

Review for Roy Hall Driven Foundation, Cleveland, OH, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I assisted as a DRIVEN Volunteer during the lastest Mr. DRIVEN Truck food drop through the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. This was a wonderful experience. Roy and Antonio have created a foundation of change, self-discipline, and love. At this event we gave away hundreds of food boxes for the 2010 holiday season! What a sight!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

serving the greater Columbus area by helping give away nutritious food to hundreds of families!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get them more publicity!

Role:  Volunteer & Assisted with packing the holiday boxes and collected signatures for USDA donated food. .
 

Review for GROVE CITY FOOD PANTRY-EMERGENCY FUND INC, Grove City, OH, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

Volunteered one day with this food pantry. The manager and staff at the Grove City Food Pantry are extremely hard workers and are getting ready to move into a new and bigger space! The impact they have on the surrounding community will be huge after this move. I can't wait to see all the good they will do.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping to serve impoverished members of the community. We really are all in this together...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Supply them with more tuna and tuna helper! They really cannot get enough of this. Hopefully, their new space will allow for more produce to be distributed.

Role:  Volunteer & Assisted in the choice pantry.
 

Review for Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resources Center, Columbus, OH, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I volunteered two days at the CRC and would do it again in a heart beat. This group of dedicated community leaders are making waves in the Columbus area; fighting hunger and poverty every day. We need more people like these in the world. Thank you CRC for all you do...

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

witnessesing lives being changed. No matter how big or small... differences are being made.

Give them more space! They serve a huge area and could really use more space to hold more food and get more people through the doors.
