Amazing Pantry Volunteers Serve Another Record Breaking Number of People with Food Insecurity
by Maureen McNair
I don’t know how they do it! But our amazing team of Saturday volunteers, organized by Deirdre Lonergan, provided food for well over 1,000 individuals again inside 90 minutes.
Mid-week, Liz and Scott Jones, Sue Marberry, Kay Chandler, and Nan and Bob Hazelton put over a ton of canned goods in grocery bags. Friday morning, Valerie Jaques, Nina Douglass and husband Jeff Kline, and Adrienne Kaplan brought in meat and bread from four sources. Friday night, Alice and Doug Diamond delivered the bread donation from Con Pane Rustic Breads and Cafe. Then, on Saturday morning, Sophia and Andres Lopez-Zimmer met the Feeding San Diego delivery truck to start off loading more food.
This past Saturday, we gave away over a ton of dry goods, 3,640 lbs of fresh produce and a record 1,048 lbs of food from Starbucks alone.
I’ll be away for a couple weeks. Please contact Deirdre Lonergan if you’d like to volunteer. Watch this space for blogs from Nina Douglass. As ever, thank you for your continued support.
