I love working at the Food Bank because you're able to help so many people and so many demographics at once. It's very rewarding. I also love meeting the volunteers and seeing their dedication to our mission.
I am extremely passionate about our mission. I believe that access to healthy food is a fundamental right as a human being. As a person who has struggled with food security, I understand the panic and hopelessness you feel when you are not able to meet your families most basic needs.
I love working with our network partners in my area (northeastern Nebraska) and serving to the best of my ability to help fill the food insecurity gaps in our rural communities.
Food Bank for the Heartland doesn't just talk the talk, it walks the walk. Working here feeds my soul. Serving the Nebraska community is my passion! I love to help and be an integral part in making a difference no matter how small it may be.
I love being able to help those in need of any type of assistance and enjoy the interaction with those individuals.
I love that every day I get to collaborate with a great team who is dedicated to serving others. I'm constantly inspired by the staff, volunteers, donors and network partners who work collectively to make the Heartland a better place.
