As a new resident of Columbus, I was eager to find a setting that would connect people with food. The idea that food is our common ground has led me to volunteer in various ways of food distribution. Before Columbus, you might have found me delivering mobile meals, cooking for seniors, or volunteering in the kitchen of an Alzheimer facility.
Heart to Heart Thursday’s drive thru is a highlight of my week. When I see all the healthy fruits, and vegetables that we distribute to our neighbors, I am thankful for the Heart to Heart volunteers who have worked tirelessly to load, deliver and pack before we begin the drive thru. I also appreciate the friendship of fellow volunteers who have welcomed a newcomer to this meaningful effort.
