June 2023 Volunteer of The Month

I am proud to share Friends with Food’s June volunteer of the month with you!  

Barb always comes into the pantry with a friendly smile and a positive attitude. You can usually find Barb in our dairy section, which is her favorite table to work at! 

We are so grateful to call Barb our friend! 


How long have you been a volunteer at Friends with Food?  

I’ve been volunteering for almost a year! 

Why did you choose to volunteer at Friends with Food?  

I live two minutes from Friends With Food. Each time I would drive by I thought that when I retire, I would look into volunteering at that place. So after I retired in July 2022, I looked into it. I’ve volunteered doing different things throughout the years and I like helping people so it seemed like a good fit! 


What is your favorite thing about volunteering at Friends with Food?  

I believe I have two favorite things about volunteering at Friends With Food… Serving others and getting to know the guests and the other volunteers! As I mentioned, I’m retired and one thing I miss is seeing people.
