“Serving as a volunteer over the past year logging in clients and listening to their testimony of need has been an eye-opening and heart-wrenching experience. When you see a child’s eyes widen as they look at the bread shelf like they just walked into a toy store, or a Mom ask for anything to help her undernourished baby, you just wish you could do more, give more. It is a great joy to help others in need, especially when you know they may have just learned how to cook a food high in nutrition that they never bought, because they did not know what it was or how to prepare it or could not afford a change in diet.

The Food Closet this year was able to give out many fresh vegetables and this brought back big smiles from the families! Some learned about kale, avocados, and even making their own pasta sauce out of fresh tomatoes. The hardest part for me was watching how hard it was for some to swallow their pride to come in for help, but once they come in and feel welcome by our great staff, all feel relieved” – Care and Share Food Closet volunteer
