CAFB Staff Become Volunteers for the Day

March 31, 2010 § 1 Comment

Several times throughout the year, CAFB employees work together on a community project.  Yesterday’s volunteer day at the Food Bank helped many of us understand why you keep coming back to volunteer with us. It’s fun!

Of course, at the end of the day, we wanted to know how we stacked up (no pun intended) with the workplace groups who help us on a typical volunteer day. With four teams working to process canned goods, meats, breads, and personal items, we prepared more than five tons of donations from community donations and the Central Texas Food Rescue Program.

Rachael Hawkey, Product Recovery Manager, said with confidence, “I would be proud to work with you all again in Product Recovery.”

From all levels of the organization, we’ve cared for the food you donate as our volunteers do, and felt the sense of pride that comes with being part of the hunger solution in Central Texas.
