Jackie Fearing Volunteer Award – Jeri & Tricia Dobbs
For 12 years, Jeri and Tricia Dobbs have inventoried, stocked and packed bins of equipment and supplies for our Nutrition Education Program’s off-site classes. They have given hundreds of hours to making sure course participants and volunteer educators have everything needed. Additionally, Jeri and Tricia helped set-up the Kaiser Permanente Teaching Kitchen at Oregon Food Bank’s Beaverton location. Their knowledge of the Nutrition Education Program was useful in helping create a kitchen environment that best supports class participants, Master Gardeners and volunteers using the space.
