  • Snacks Staff and volunteers love snacks though we usually make an effort to feed ourselves. It’s great when we can provide a little pick me up for those suffering from low blood sugar crashes. And we aren’t too picky either… Fruit, veggies, chips, and (best of all) freezies are gladly accepted.
