Director's Dish

There is still much work to be done, however, we are inspired and encouraged by the efforts of our partners, volunteers, and donors. Thank you for being part of our community! Recently, I found myself asking — what is the definition of community? As is often the case in the English language, there is no one definition.

Two of the definitions I found were – a group of people with a common characteristic or living together with a larger society, and a unified body of individuals.

When I think of the Foodbank’s community, the definition I think holds most true is — a unified body of individuals. We come from different geographic communities, have different professions and different interests, but the one characteristic that unifies us is our passion to provide a basic need — food.

In the last several months, the Foodbank has delivered food to its network of partners, hosted drive-thru distributions, and provided food directly to children and seniors. With your help and the help of countless partners and volunteers who sorted and handed out food, pre-boxed groceries, and delivered food in our refrigerated vans, together we have provided hope for our neighbors.

There is still much work to be done, however, we are inspired and encouraged by the efforts of our partners, volunteers, and donors. Thank you for being part of our community!
