“Volunteers bring heart to our school community”
From the bottom of our hearts!
Our volunteers really do help make the world a better place with the sharing of your time and heart felt efforts to serve our students. You’re doing more than just filling their bellies. You’re showing them that people and community really do care. Thanks for volunteering.

How did you first learn about Nutrition for Learning and opportunities to volunteer?
An advertisement on Facebook looking for volunteers.
Why did you decide to become a volunteer with Nutrition for Learning?
I really wanted to get more involved in the community and enjoy helping people and thought this was a great company to get involved.
From your point of view what has been the impact of student nutrition programs in the community?
Nutrition for Learning has a great impact in the community. The set up at the schools, and school parking lots when schools are closed, is great for access to nutritious snacks for the children in our community. The impact is evident through the number of families that I have met that rely on this program.
Would you recommend volunteering with Nutrition for Learning to others and WHY?
Yes absolutely. It is so much fun, I enjoy chatting with the families, meeting people in the community and helping.
What has your overall experience been like, volunteering with Nutrition for Learning?
I have thoroughly enjoyed volunteering with Nutrition for Learning. I have met so many amazing people in the community.
