Volunteers are the backbone of Montgomery County Food Bank’s many services and programs. Regularly over 600 people donate their time each month, greatly expanding outreaches that impact many families and individuals who are facing hunger.
Among these valued volunteers is a group who regularly work together as a team in our Produce Rescue Center (PRC). The PRC is a special initiative that works to sort and prep perishable fruits and veggies so, instead of going to waste, they can be distributed to the people who need them most.
Most every Tuesday afternoon, this committed team of volunteers cheerfully bundles up so they can work comfortably in the 40 degree room. They meet every shift with enthusiasm and are always up to the challenge of shattering the records of any previous group of volunteers.
The team takes great care to salvage as much as possible, while assembling an assortment of fruits and veggies that will fill the recipient with delight when they open the box.
We extend a huge shout-out to this committed crew who are going the extra mile to ensure our neighbors who are facing hunger have fresh, nutritious produce.
