Spotlight: Hunger Task Force Stories
Stories & Features
The principal strength of Hunger Task Force is its compassionate and committed staff. This month, Hunger Task Force is proud to announce the addition of three new faces to our Advocacy team. We are thrilled to welcome T.R., Tammy and Carlos.
This year, nearly 100 Baird volunteers assisted Hunger Task Force during Baird Gives Back Week. Employees donning their signature blue tees volunteers in teams at the Hunger Task Force Farm and Volunteer Action Center.
In addition to returning to indoor service, One God Ministry embraced food choice – a service model they had initiated before the pandemic. The choice-model allows pantry guests to select culturally appropriate foods, meet individual health and dietary needs and select foods that are familiar and enjoyed just as they would in a grocery store.
Each month Hunger Task Force is honored to recognize an individual or group who go above and beyond in their service to the organization. From food sorting and building healthy food boxes for seniors to helping individuals shop the Mobile Market and harvesting at The Farm, volunteers help Hunger Task Force feed people today and support our work in ending future hunger.
