A Professional Volunteer

Dyane Amos has volunteered in the Food & Friends kitchen every Tuesday morning for nearly 3 years. When needed, she arrives early and stays late to make sure all the meals are prepared and packaged for our clients living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses. She works meticulously to ensure special diets are followed and that the meals are prepared with a watchful eye for consistency and quality.

Her knowledge of the kitchen is a tremendous asset to our chefs and kitchen staff, and her enthusiasm for volunteering and working with school groups is a huge help to the volunteer services staff. Dyane leaves Food & Friends the same way she comes in each day- with a big smile and a kind word for everyone she passes on her way.

The thousands of meals Dyane helps prepare are delivered by to men, women and children living with life-challenging illnesses all over the Washington, DC metro area. Many individuals served by Food & Friends live below the poverty line and could not otherwise afford nutritious meals for themselves and their families while undergoing treatments. Other clients are too weak from their illnesses and treatments to prepare meals at home. Volunteers such as Dyane make it possible for meals to be delivered to families daily at no cost to them.

Dyane's dedication is nothing short of extraordinary. She is at Food & Friends every Tuesday without fail. Her mother and children know not to even try calling her on Tuesday mornings. When friends ask her to join them on a Tuesday morning, she simply says, "It's Tuesday - I have somewhere I need to be." And our clients need her to be here too. Thanks Dyane!
