Staff highlights give you a peek inside SFBFS’ operations and the people who make the organization run. Please meet SFBFS’ CalFresh Outreach Assistant, Ray Dowler.
What’s your favorite thing about working at SFBFS?
People. The smiles, the care and generosity of volunteers, the hope and drive of clients.
What does a typical workday at SFBFS look like for you?
Not typical. I always have a daily goal but there’s always an opportunity to help clients with questions and needs, as well as assisting SFBFS staff with unexpected tasks like helping set up audio equipment out of the blue for Network Café.
What inspires you in supporting the SFBFS mission and culture?
Knowing I’m working for the greater good and helping those in need.
What is your favorite pastime?
Spending time with family.
What is your favorite fruit or veggie and why?
Too many to list but my top three are jalapenos, they add life to anything, avocados from guacamole to ceviche to topping bagels and finally tomatoes, for salsa, soup, sandwiches and sauce.
