Volunteering at MFB New England fulfilling

At first, Glenn Koehler thought he would spend his retirement years teaching. It seemed like a natural transition after spending 38 years as a pediatric dentist, serving on a school board, coaching little league, and being a board member of a children's museum.

"I just kept returning to fulfilling a human need, like feeding people," says Glenn.

Then he saw an article in a local newspaper about Midwest Food Bank opening in Manchester. It was great timing. Glenn visited MFB, met the volunteer coordinator, and toured the facility. The warm welcome he received on his first visit continues.

"I've had the experience of being valued time and time again," says Glenn.
The people are what Glenn likes best about volunteering at MFB. He volunteers in the warehouse by helping with the inventory process. As MFB New England continues to distribute more food, it is vital to have a strong inventory process.

"Glenn's flexibility and willingness to volunteer by receiving incoming loads has enabled us to grow our food distribution," says Jan Young, Executive Director of MFB New England. "We are blessed to have him as a core volunteer."

"Your life can be defined by what you earn or possess, but the reality is to be in service to something greater than yourself," says Glenn. "It's fulfilling."
