Michelle a blessing to MFB New England
Michelle Zelesky heard about Midwest Food Bank New England when she was volunteering at another non-profit. Now she volunteers at MFB weekly, loading vehicles on distribution day, sorting groceries, and operating a pallet jack in the warehouse.
"I have seen so much progress in the facility since I began volunteering," says Michelle. "I like the fact that we are able to provide food directly to many agencies in an extended geographical area."
The location of MFB New England was secured in August 2021, and volunteers have been critical in getting the site established.
"Michelle has a strong service ethic," says Jan Young, Executive Director of MFB New England. "The commitment she saw from MFB volunteers and employees really appealed to her."
Michelle and her husband, Mark, live in Bolton, CT, and have two children. She is a retired criminologist and worked with the FDIC and in the court system. When she's not at MFB she enjoys kayaking, hiking, and her three dogs.
