He provides guidance at each of our Fresh Mobile Markets to our excellent staff, wonderful volunteers, and incredible clients.

Joy Miller – Duff – Night Shift Pick-Up Driver

Lynn Fuller – Night Shift Pick-Up Driver

As a part-time Child Nutrition Assistant for the Guilford County school system, childhood hunger is a cause that Lynn works with day in and day out. Out of the Garden Project’s mission to combat food insecurity for children in her own community drew Lynn to find new ways to make a personal impact on the hunger issue at hand. After speaking with Don Milholin she found the evening donation pickups to be a way that she could make a direct impact on people’s lives. Childhood hunger is a large issue in the triad and Lynn am very proud to be apart of the solution as a member of the Out of the Garden Project team.
