As someone who is still early in my career, I quickly learned the value professional organizations provide. After working at Brunet-García for a year and a half, I learned many of my coworkers share the same idea. Team members at our agency are deeply involved in organizations that provide professional development, volunteer, and networking opportunities. We all have our own specific reasons for being part of our respective organizations, but we share the same passion for being part of a group that supports our personal and professional growth.

Getting food to those who need it most is no easy feat. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) operates 15 federal nutrition assistance programs to handle the logistics of getting food from farm and production all the way to local communities and into the hands of underserved families. USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) programs serve one in four Americans during the course of a year.
