Be a Volunteer

“I started volunteering with Georgia Mountain Food Bank because I wanted to make a difference in the community.  I can’t imagine not being able to feed my child or having to tell my little one that there is no food to eat. I wanted to be able to do something to help people in this situation. As a mom I hear my little one ask for snacks throughout the day and even at bed time sometimes! Every mom should have the opportunity to feed her children when they are hungry.”
-Michelle Wiley, GMFB Volunteer
