We Are a Learning Organization

This has been a month of continuous learning and growth fueled by our amazing volunteers. For starters, I would like to welcome the following new volunteers:

Andrea, Betsy, Paul, Sandy, Marian, Melissa (Lister), Jodi, Sundi, Christine, Melissa (Molnar), Anne, and Alison

And we needed every volunteer given what we achieved in March:

This growth was made possible through a grant received from NJ Economic Development Authority and many other generous donations. The growth was realized because of volunteers, you!

Feedback from those we support:

“Thank Share My Meals. This is a life saver. It really is.”

“I work three jobs and I have no time to wait in line at food banks. When I get home after a long hard day at work, I am so grateful when I see the Share My Meals has delivered a nice, warm, nutritious meal.”

Volunteer Survey…Results Are In

Your feedback is what fuels our continuous learning. Many of you were gracious enough to complete our volunteer survey and you provided us with insightful feedback. Most importantly we want to let you know we heard you. The Share My Meals Board has reviewed in dept and is working a set of action plans.

Some survey highlights:

Your feedback really is a gift, and we hope you will continue to share as we work to enable Share My Meals to address Food Waste and Food Insecurity.

What Is Coming UP!

Gleaning: it is that time of year again to roll up your sleeves and help with our gleaning program. Last year the team proved that farming is hard work and a whole bunch of fun! This is a great opportunity for families too. If interested, please contact [email protected].
