“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.” - Elizabeth Andrew


One year ago, I had the opportunity to volunteer with Food Fighters to help fight on-campus food waste and food insecurity right here in Jacksonville, Fl. And I haven’t looked back since. It truly has been a life-changing experience and has led me to where I am today, serving as an ELP Project Leader. I wanted to be an ELP Project Leader because I wanted to make a difference in people's lives and leading Food Fighters allows me to do that with both our volunteers and with those who are food insecure. A couple of fun facts about me are that I studied abroad in Italy and I am a die-hard Jacksonville Jaguars fan.

I began volunteering with Food Fighters Spring 2019. I quickly fell in love with the project, volunteering every week and was offered the incredible opportunity to be a co-leader. The ELP program has taught me so much and opened so many doors in the field of nutrition. Thanks to the project, we can provide well-balanced meals to those in need in our community. I also see how the program provides support for our community partners in their hunger-relief efforts. Food Fighters has given me a sense of purpose within my community. Nothing brings me more joy than helping others and being able to witness the difference each and every one of us can make, from simply dedicating a few volunteer hours a week. A little fun fact about myself is I love all adventures and anything outdoors! A few of my favorite things to do in my free time is going to the springs, hiking, road tripping, camping, surfing, climbing and photography.

In the fall semester of my Junior year, I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Food Fighters. I began volunteering every week. I want to participate in the Environmental Leadership Program (ELP) for Food Fighters because I saw firsthand the impact that this program was making on the community and I wanted to assist in furthering the efforts of Food Fighters. I wanted to encourage others to volunteer with us and participate in making a positive impact. The ELP will help me grow and develop my leadership, organizational, and networking skills even further. I am excited to make an impact with the ELP and my other Project Leaders. Some fun facts about me are: I lived in the Czech Republic for a year right after graduating high school through Rotary Youth Exchange. I am still heavily involved with Rotary and Rotary Youth Exchange as a member of the Rotary Club of St. Augustine, and I really enjoy traveling and experiencing the culture of other countries.
