Archway Food Bank of Abbotsford
Friday was a bittersweet day as we celebrated Ali's last day here at our food bank! Ali started with us in June of 2022 as our Satellite and Food Sourcing Coordinator, where she supported, maintained and coordinated over a dozen neighbourhood and program satellite locations, while also working with a variety of community groups with the goal of expanding the program. She also sourced and obtained pricing for all of the food bank's programs, communicating with vendors, suppliers, and grocers, to keep costs down, while also sourcing quality and nutritious food. Ali also took on a variety of other tasks when needed, including stepping up as the Interim Volunteer Coordinator for 4 months. Ali is hardworking, organized, consistent, reliable, resourceful, and always willing to step in when someone needs help. We will miss having her as a member of our team! Ali is staying in the non-profit world, moving into an exciting position where she will be supporting youths that are in foster care, with the goal of reunification. Please join us in wishing her all the best! ... See MoreSee Less
