Volunteer Appreciation Day

What kinds of people dedicate their time to re-packing frozen peas, labeling instant oatmeal or sorting through food drive donations? Food Lifeline volunteers, of course. April is National Volunteer Appreciation Month and so last Saturday we invited a group of some of our most dedicated volunteers to join us for a special volunteer session. After sorting through over a truckload of food donations in fewer than 2 hours, volunteers enjoyed a delicious lunch catered by Dante’s Inferno Hot Dogs and swapped stories about their time with us.
