Meet the Food Bank’s September Volunteer of the Month!

Dave Fleischman is our September “Volunteer of the Month.” He contributes many hours each week lending a helping hand in our distribution center. When asked what motivated him to volunteer his time at the Food Bank, Fleischman smiled and said, because he wants to make a difference, and a difference he makes. Fleischman sorts through hundreds of pounds of produce two to three shifts per week, amazing! He also takes the initiative each week leading volunteers through their various tasks. We appreciate him so much.

Fleischman, a U.S. Navy veteran and a Physics professor, dedicates his time and really makes an impact at the Food Bank. When asked about his beginnings, Fleischman explained that it was thanks to his wife, a Registered Dietitian and Registered Nurse that he first volunteered with the San Diego Food Bank. Fleischman and his wife volunteered their time together through a volunteer event with Sharp Hospital, and ever since then Fleischman has never looked back. We thank you Dave for a job well done. You inspire and motivate, and that is why you are our September “Volunteer of the Month”!
