This past Saturday Poulos & Bennett team members and family had the wonderful opportunity to volunteer with Community Food & Outreach Center (CFOC). CFOC’s mission is, “To help those in need to transform their lives by providing food, crisis care, opportunities for education and employment, and a hand up to families, individuals and children who are fighting to break the cycle of poverty”. Some of the ways they do this is by providing a discount grocery store and thrift store to those clients that qualify. They also offer counseling and an education program that teaches courses like budgeting and nutrition.
During our time at CFOC our team got the chance to spend the afternoon helping in a variety of ways including restocking the grocery store, unloading a truck of donations, and helping to prepare the thrift store for a special Thanksgiving event. It was a gratifying experience to work with an organization so passionate about changing the lives of those in poverty in the Central Florida area.
