"I wanted to give back to the community."

Dale's Story

After I retired, I wanted to give back to the community. My wife suggested the Community Food Bank. I’ve been volunteering here for two years now.

When clients come through I hand out whatever needs to be handed out. Sometimes I know the clients coming through. The Food Bank serves a very good purpose.

The food we give out is good, fresh food. There’s always fresh produce—always bananas and tomatoes. It’s nice to see that we give out such good food.

It’s a social thing, volunteering here. There’s a lot of conversation going on while people are going through the line. It’s very enjoyable. I get to meet different people in the community. Giving back and meeting new people—it’s very fulfilling.

Dale volunteers twice a week and enjoys the fulfillment of contributing to his community in a positive social setting.
