My name is Tammy Gamble and I’m the Food Distribution Coordinator at the Brantford Food Bank. I have worked for Community Resource Service (Brantford Food Bank) for 8 years now.
I receive donations from the community and pick up donations from businesses and grocery stores. I am always so appreciative of how much this community supports our agency – everyone steps up to donate food when we find ourselves in a tight spot with bare shelves.
I also help ensure that food is distributed to local food cupboards and meal programs so that they have the food they need too. I love to help serve and feed people who require our services. I am passionate about ensuring that we have good healthy food options to give to our clients, and I love seeing the smiles on their faces when we are able to fulfill their needs.
I also help organize and supervise our wonderful volunteers, as well as students who are earning volunteer or co-op hours.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, scrapbooking, photography and building relationships in the community. I also enjoy reading, which is part of the reason we offer used books for people to borrow at the food bank. I am a huge advocate for literacy and it over flows into my job.
