What is your WHY, why do you work at The Idaho Foodbank?

Before working at The Idaho Foodbank, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?

I worked at the Boise Airport at the Security Checkpoint when it was managed by the Boise Police Department. The Airport at that time was very small and had just a few gates and everyone was allowed to go back and meet family and friends at the gate.
