Kamala has been with us since November and has been a regular on an M.H. Bread & Butter food trip for quite some time. She tells us that she’s greeted with warmth and familiarity at MHB&B and Martinelli House and that’s what she enjoys most about doing a regular food trip. Recently she’s also been interviewing and filming some of our food donors and recipients for an upcoming ExtraFood video. We’re so glad she’s on the ExtraFood team!
