    I helped with updating the senior nutrition information in Dale county. I made sure to verify the listed phone numbers, addresses, and any given information on the different resources listed. I also searched online to see if I could find any other organizations in Dale county who provide senior nutrition services. I really enjoy volunteering and working on the ECHA county food guide project. I like that I am able to volunteer online and still be able to make an impact on different counties in Alabama by helping provide information on nutritional services. I think the most challenging aspect for me was looking to find additional resources for Dale county. My key takeaway is that their is a lot you can do to support the communities and counties around you even while volunteering from home.
