Jill finds volunteering at MFB New England purposeful

When Jill Welti worked as a dental hygienist, not everyone was excited to see her.

"I like that everyone is happy to be at Midwest Food Bank," says Jill. "Not everyone was happy to come to the dentist."

Now retired, Jill says spending time at MFB New England fills her time with something purposeful. "I receive much more than I give," says Jill. "Whether it's in the conversations with fellow volunteers, seeing the appreciation of the agencies on Load Out Day, or the realization of the magnitude of food insecurities."

Jill has lived in Ellington all her life and visited several of MFB's locations. She wanted to support the launch of the MFB New England. Jill started by painting and cleaning bathrooms and is currently a volunteer team leader. Her enthusiastic spirit is noticed by MFB staff.

"Jill has been an able and willing volunteer and supporter from day one," says Jan Young, Executive Director of MFB New England. "She is energetic about our mission and is proactive about helping us succeed."

When Jill isn't at MFB, she is spending time with her family or being part of the family business Kloter Farms. Volunteers like Jill assist MFB in fulfilling our mission. In 2021, at all MFB locations, volunteers gave 317,786 hours of service, which is the equivalent of 158 paid staff. Click here to learn more about volunteering at MFB New England.
