Real Stories of Hunger

Jestine - A 92 year old food bank volunteer
Columbia, SC

"Jestine volunteers in one our Emergency Food Pantries at Harvest Hope Food Bank. She is a very young 92 years of age and has enjoyed volunteering for the last 15 years. The choir at her church recently recognized her with a "Helping the Hungry" award. I asked Jestine what made her start volunteering in 2000. She said she had a close neighbor whose family was struggling with hunger at the time. She came to Harvest Hope to get them help and started volunteering ever since. Please say "Thank You" to Jestine and please share this post with your friends! She is just ONE of our almost 11k strong volunteer base!"
