Volunteer Coordinator

How I got to the Food Bank

At the beginning of COVID-19, I began volunteering at the Food Bank. After volunteering for about three months, the volunteer coordinator position opened up. I applied for and accepted the job offer within a week! I am so excited to be a member of the Food Bank family!

What I love about the Food Bank

My favorite part about the Food Bank is how friendly the staff and volunteers are. Everyone takes the time to get to know you on a personal level. I also love how all of the employees are eager to offer help when they have some down time. The Food Bank has become like a family to me.

Greatest travel story

One time I climbed through a water-filled cave with only a candle. At points in the cave, the water level was so high you had to use a rope to pull yourself through the cave. Since you were holding a candle, you couldn’t really swim or the candle would extinguish. There were also points in the cave where you had to climb a ladder, while holding a candle. Let’s just say that it wasn’t the safest adventure I’ve ever gone on, but it was absolutely worth it.
