- Stories & Testimonials
Tucked safely in Margie Baer’s bicycle bags are fresh fruit and vegetables, proteins, and staples—essential foods that save vulnerable Marin seniors from hunger.
For more than four years, Margie, a retired doctor, has delivered groceries from JFCS’ Food Bank to the doorsteps of local seniors.
“It’s meaningful to bring food to elderly members of our community. Many of them don’t have family nearby to help,” says Margie. She smiles when recalling an older gentleman who would greet her each week with a new joke, giving the gift of laughter in appreciation for the food.
Next time you see a cyclist with heavily laden bags, it could be a caring volunteer like Margie bringing food to people in need.
We are grateful to Margie for generously sharing her time and energy to help fight hunger and care for our community!
