Life has thrown its fair share of challenges at Sam, but it eventually led him to FARSB, where he discovered a calling to become a volunteer. "At first, it was challenging to work here, but it got better as the years passed. And now it's wonderful. We are doing many different things, building up, and changing. It's incredible!" said Sam, reflecting on his journey.

Recognizing his potential, two former colleagues took notice and encouraged him to pursue the position of Inventory Control Coordinator when it became available. Initially, He was hesitant, but something inside him urged him to say, "Yes, I would love to work here," Sam recalled.

Sam experienced an unforgettable encounter that revitalized his spirit amid moments of doubt and weariness. A community member visiting the food bank approached him during a tour to express heartfelt gratitude for all the work he does. This individual shared how the food they received from FARSB was vital in keeping them going, motivating him never to give up. The impact of that simple interaction inspired Sam to persevere in his fight against hunger in the region.
