Born and raised in Pasadena, the Glen Burnie resident, who is studying for a degree in addiction counseling, began volunteering at GB in 2016.

 

Tell us about your work at GB.

I work every Thursday. I help evaluate the quality of the produce. What doesn’t pass inspection goes to compost.

What’s the best thing about volunteering at GB?

To see people receiving bags of produce.

I volunteer with homeless outreach, and I tell people about Gather Baltimore, hoping they’ll come by and experience this side of life, and learn about the produce. I see homeless people living in the woods along Crain Highway. I try to help them.

What’s your favorite produce?

Fruit. I make the wildest smoothies in town! I drink a breakfast smoothie every day. I juice oranges, mangoes, almond milk, grapes, even a fresh garlic clove. It’s delicious!
