Just another volunteer…

One thing you’ll notice is that when you volunteer at Food for All DC is that it’s very informal. We treat everyone the same. All volunteers are expected to muck in and help; whether it’s bagging produce, filling grocery bags or picking up trash and recycling.

This especially goes for our good friend Senator Jon Tester and his wife Sharla who’ve volunteered with us on a number of occasions. There was no fanfare or fuss when the Senator and his wife volunteered with us during last year’s federal government shutdown. We put them to work on our assembly line packing Food for All DC grocery bags with a selection of cans, pasta, juice and pasta.

Then as soon as the packing was done they stepped right up to go out and deliver some of the bags they just filled!

Read more about the Senator’s recent visit to Food for All DC here in David Parker’s blog about his upcoming new book on the Montana 2012 senate race.

AMURT saving lives in Nigeria

Andy and Dada meeting the locals

With maternal and child mortality rates amongst the highest in the world AMURT’s Primary Health Program in Ebonyi State Nigeria is saving lives. Just over a week ago a former Food for All DC Volunteer Andy Watts traveled to Abakaliki (the capital of Ebonyi) to implement a new database system for their Maternal Health Program. Andy has been working on this system for many months and finally got to meet the folks who will be using and benefiting from this system. There is still a lot of work to do but he is making great progress. Food for All is very proud of everything Andy has done and we can be sure that his work will be greatly appreciated by everyone there involved in the program.

Thanks to Wells Fargo

On Wednesday afternoon we had the privilege of attending a presentation at Wells Fargo offices in DC to receive a donation from one of our volunteers, Kyle Moore, who was awarded runner-up in their volunteer of the year award.

Kyle has been a great supporter of Food for All and we really appreciate all he and Wells Fargo have done for us. Thank you!
