Have a heart! And some apples, carrots, celery and kale!

Every day at Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services (SFBFS), I get to witness the greatest things about being human, seeing people who are giving, caring, empathetic, compassionate, and hopeful.

In the daily span of doing my job I'm blessed with seeing the most wonderful acts of kindness. SFBFS volunteers are truly amazing! Day in and day out we have a constant rotation of volunteers helping to do everything from sorting and bagging canned items, dry goods, fresh produce, meat and dairy, as well as helping with the set up and handing out of these goods at food distributions. The faces I see are all ethnicities, all ages, all incomes. They're all working hard together, all smiling with purpose and moving toward one goal: helping others.

I encourage you to come to a volunteer orientation and see the great changes SFBFS is continuing to strive for. See if there is an opportunity for you or someone you know to give back to our community and help those in need become more self sufficient. Take a step towards greatness.

"Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love." - Martin Luther King Jr.
