For the past 15 months, I've volunteered at the Food Bank campus.You can find me in the reception office with my mentor, Cary Howitson, every Friday. I have got to tell you, I look forward to Fridays for so many reasons, not the least being that Cary is an inspiration to work with.

It is personally fulfilling helping people discover all the fantastic services that Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services (SFBFS) offers. Most call to locate food distributors and are more thankful to find out that you can also sign up for adult education, parenting and computer classes. I also let them know that we help with resumes, finding employment opportunities and much more.

We have terrific staff and volunteers who can help them sign up for CalFresh, distribute fresh produce, and host nutrition classes.

Everyone I've met while volunteering at SFBFS makes me feel better about people in general. Come on by and say hi!
