Alfred has volunteered with Central Illinois Foodbank since October 2014. By volunteering Alfred is able to see a different side of the food process and enhance his interest in the work they do from start to finish. Alfred is the type of the volunteer who is willing to do whatever they need him to do. This includes, but is not limited to, painting sort rooms, cleaning, sorting food, and picking up retail donations. The Foodbank is able to rely on him to do trainings for both volunteers and staff members that include warehouse safety and food safety. Alfred has been a real attribute to the organization over the last 2 years not just from the volunteer hours he commits to, but his input and ideas on how to complete tasks.
Beyond volunteering at Central Illinois Foodbank Alfred has many hobbies, including: woodwork, working with glass, making candles and soaps, and photography. He also enjoys the retired life with his wife and dogs here in Springfield. Alfred is a one of a kind man and a one of kind volunteer with ideas on how to get people to donate more through local grocers or donating their time. The Foodbank appreciates all that Alfred has done and will continue to do for their organization.
