Review for CRRC of Canyon Lake Inc, Canyon Lake, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It is a pleasure to Volunteer at our local food pantry. My "co-workers" and I enjoy the friendship and assistance we recieve from our Director. We are frequently asked our opinions and thoughts regarding future development of our Pantry.

Our area has continually brought us more clients each month. Which has, at times, caused us to need additional personnel to handle the deliveries and disbursements. The Volunteers work together to cover the additional loads.

Our Director assists us whenever we have to make changes in our schedule that affect our assigned work schedule.

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

At this time, we could use more space, more for storage, and more for displaying. New refrigeration would be great. Additional office space would be nice to provide privacy for those needing financial assistance. Our A/C is also stressed, especially during the warmer parts of the year.

working in our food bank over the past few years I have recognized an increase of hundreds of new clients needing our assistance. At the same time I realize the Food Bank is having to stretch its dollar to get the kind of food that was more easily avialable to use two years ago. I feel bad not being able to hand out the fresh produce, milk, eggs, and fruit that we use to have. But, our clients are always greatful. We have added free finance classes for the clients to help them use their resources more wisely. Our directors are ever diligent in providing the best that we can give on our limited budgeta.

Working at the CRRC Food Bank is a delight. The Volunteer Staff as well as the Directors all join in helping those in our area that need our support and assistance. It is more than giving out food, clothing, and assistance with bills. It is the art of understanding and supporting our community members during difficult time. Our Director is developing a method of "individual Selection" when it comes to the food items. The Client will let us know what items "They do NOT need" allowing us to fill their baskets more appropriately, eleiminating foods they may not eat or want. saves money, time and prevents waste.

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

Each day I volunteer I see how greatful the client is to be recieving our donations. So many of them could not make it though the month if it were not for the local Food Bank.

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

We are currently setting up the food shelves, placing a "white Board" listing the latest item. Allowing the client to tell us what they do not need. The Volunteers and the Directors have a good working relationship and any idea coming from either side is considered with the Client in mind.

Role:  Volunteer & Stock food items, and prepare food carts for the clients.
