Volunteer Spotlight

Molly and Cheryl

Molly Hughes is the President of the food bank, and Cheryl Thomas is in charge of our food inventory. Cheryl makes all of our purchasing decisions, orders fresh produce for every distribution, and decides what food will be given out every month. She watches all the weekly sales and stretches our dollars to get the "biggest bang for our buck." She develops our holiday bags to help make them special for our clients. Cheryl manages our food inventory and budget so that our clients are guaranteed a good supply of staples and fresh food every month.



Jack and Bill

Jack Tingstad and Bill Young are long-time volunteers. They help with bagging our food for the clients and food drives. Both men have been with the food bank from the start. Their dependability and good cheer are a very appreciated constant at the food bank.



Barbara, Margaret & Carol

"Go To Girls" Barbara Wood, Margaret Elphick, and Carol Harrison are three of the best cross-trained volunteers at the food bank. They bag food for the clients, re-bag bulk food, are distribution back-ups and help with food drives. Carol has also made deliveries, conducted tours of the food bank, and works with the schools. Their many years as volunteers and willingness to step in wherever needed make them invaluable assets to the food bank.



Carol , Peggy and Darrell

"The Greenbank Gang" Carol Dyer, Peggy Swart, and Darrell Dyer are in charge of our Greenbank distribution. They help bag the food, transport it to Greenbank, distribute it to anywhere from 18 to 25 families, and drive the supplies back to Coupeville when they are done. This is very time-consuming and labor-intensive work. They have been with the food bank since we opened and have been handling Greenbank for the past five years. Having a Greenbank distribution location is a huge convenience for these families, and we could not do it without Carol, Darrell, and Peggy!



Tom

Tom Dale has been a volunteer for the food bank for eight years. He drives to NW Harvest twice a month, picks up our food drives, helps with all our "heavy lifting," and is our parade driver. Tom has a full-time job with the school district, so his dedication to the NW Harvest runs to Kent is a huge commitment. We receive 30% of our food from NW Harvest, so these pickups are critical to the success of the food bank.
