The market was well organized and a great environment amongst the volunteers. I love volunteering for organizations that help children and that increase access to food for those in need so combining those two things for Joyful Market was a wonderful experience.
I volunteered at the Reston community market with Capital Area Food Bank this morning and it was the best volunteer experience I've had! The market was so efficiently run, the leaders were clear and inspiring, and there was such an evident positive sense of community amongst the volunteers and market attendees.
it was very hard to find and I got really lost but once I got there the staff was very kind and helpful and I enjoyed the service!
Volunteering with FRESHFarm gave me a new perspective about food accessibility and the value of eating locally. Through volunteering I learned about many of their initiatives that help provide healthy food to low-income communities and teach children about preparing healthy meals. They addressed food accessibility by accepting EBT cards, vouchers for seniors and women and children, and matching dollars for people using SNAP funds. I definitely learned a lot in a short period of time.
