A Decade of Service: Reflections of a Volunteer

Bread for the City wouldn’t exist without our dedicated volunteers. They serve as important partners in Bread for the City’s work by contributing hours of their time at our food pantries, orchard, clothing room, rooftop gardens, events, and centers to ensure we remain able to help 8,000 – 10,000 people each month. We can’t do it without them. Marie Hoffman is one of these amazing volunteers. After ten years serving at Bread, she shares her story.
