Congratulations to Bradley Hein, our volunteer of the month for September 2019! Bradley, a kitchen volunteer, was nominated by fellow volunteer Steve Bailey.
Volunteers are at the center of Project Angel Heart. Each year, our more than 1,200 core volunteers prepare and package more than 360,000 meals and drive over 82,000 miles to deliver them to our clients facing life-threatening illnesses.
In our 2019 volunteer engagement survey, we asked volunteers how well they think we are accomplishing our mission and why they choose to give their time, effort, and dedication to Project Angel Heart.
Working in the medical community, Bread & Butter Club member Jennifer Hill understands the important role of food as medicine. As a speech-language pathologist, she regularly works with clients who have difficulty swallowing and require altered food textures to eat safely. Many of them struggle to prepare safe and healthy meals at home.
We often only see wild rice served three ways: in a soup, as a salad, and as a side grain. But there is so much more we can do with it. Wild rice has a robust, toasty flavor along with a strong texture that support much more creative recipes. From savory fritters to sweet custards, there is more than one way to husk a grain. Wild rice gets its rich color and flavor from the parching and roasting process. So, the trick is to highlight and use that flavor to enhance your dish rather than just serving it up as a side.
Each year, we survey everyone who receives our meals to see how well we are meeting their needs. We recently finished gathering data for our 2019 survey, and the results show just how much clients enjoy our delicious meals.
