Every month, we highlight someone who makes The SEED the do-it-together food movement that it is. This month we chatted with Sherry, a Groceries from The SEED delivery volunteer.
Sherry is a kind-hearted, hard-working, and incredibly passionate team member who has been volunteering with the Groceries From The SEED delivery team since September of 2021, bringing good food to people’s doors in her personal vehicle.
Sherry’s love for the community is on full display during every volunteer shift, and her positivity is contagious. She is always ready to take on any challenge, including fitting up to 10 bins of food in her car for one route! We are so lucky to have her on the team. Thanks for all you do, Sherry!!
Quick Interview with Sherry…
- Name: Sherry Holder
- Hometown: “Born and lived in Guelph all my life!”
- Role at The SEED: Delivery person for Groceries from The SEED
- Favourite food: Pizza
- Favourite part of being a volunteer: “My favourite part of my role is getting to meet some of our customers! I enjoy seeing smiles on their faces as I bring their groceries to them. For some people I may be the only person they talk to on a cold winter day where they may not be able to leave their home to do their own shopping. However, what they may not realize is that during that day they may be the only person I speak to too! Meeting and greeting our customers is a big part of Groceries from The SEED. I look forward to the weekly commitment to be helpful and make a difference in our community.”
- Why The SEED matters: “The SEED provides not only fresh healthy nutritious food, it provides the customer with choices of the food they like to eat and affordable. Often the orders are filled with fresh fruit and vegetables. For some the availability of pre-made dinners and baked goods is so helpful and appreciated. The Souper Soups are an excellent source of protein and are easy and wholesome to make. The SEED is making a difference by offering high quality service to those in Guelph and the County of Wellington.”
