Pantry Co-coordinator & NOW program coordinator

June 2019 Grand Rapids, MI
“I've loved being able to provide a much-needed service to my local community. I had two positions: as a pantry co-coordinator, I worked at the management level helping to oversee volunteers, assist the Executive Director, sort/organize donations, staffing, etc. and had to fill any vacant positions if one arose. I was able to craft and implement a survey gauging satisfaction and necessity to include additional items which were a great experience. As a Nutritional Options to Wellness (NOW) program coordinator, I worked one-on-one with clients who had chronic diseases. I helped disseminate information pertaining to the health benefits and disease management through nutrition, I bought and stocked healthy foods that facilitated that, and researched recipes and incentives to motivate them to try new products that would be more nutritious for them. All the while, I had to adhere to Acess West Michigan's paperwork requirements; and gave feedback that will help them reshape the new program that will be implemented in April 2020.”
