Through word of mouth above me I've heard great and wonderful things bout this organization, plus they do great work to assist in the breakdown of hungry children and/or families across our region.

Our manager treats her staff like gold and sees us for the valuable commodity we are in getting food to those who are hungry. It is a small food distribution warehouse and any type of these skills are always appreciated - Office help, light dock work, and pick-up/delivery for HTF and clients. It is good to know that people are not as hungry as they were before because of your efforts afterwords. Come and ask for Shelly and see why we are so willing to volunteer for her!
