Volunteer Spotlight: Anna N. at Paradigm High in South Jordan, Utah

When/How did you begin participating with Bountiful Baskets?

I was talking to my Aunt many years ago about how I could not afford fresh fruit to keep on the table for my kids.  She told me to look into Bountiful Baskets.  I forgot all about it, then one of my Co-Workers was telling all about this food co-op that she had found and the great deal that she got and it clicked that this was the same as what my Aunt was telling me about a year prior.

Why did you become a Site Coordinator?

I LOVE meeting new people, and making new friends.  What better way to get to know people those who have

a passion for produce as much as I do!

What is your favorite part about Bountiful Baskets?

I love it when I get something “new” in my basket, something that I have never tried before.  Also a great way to get my kids to try new things as well.

What is your favorite part about volunteering/running a site?

It is my “Girls Night”, every week I get to get out with other people that are grown ups!

Tell us a little about your site?

I have a Thursday night site at Paradigm High School, it is awesome that Bountiful Baskets now has evening sites in Salt Lake County.  Some of us people are not morning people!

What makes your site fun or unique?

Did I say that we are a Thursday night site?

What is the craziest or silliest thing that has happened to you or at your site during baskets?

My Truck driver asked me if I was single….And I will leave it at that! ;)

Any weird basket dreams you would like to share?

I had a dream not long ago that I was getting calls from all the other Volunteer Site Coordinator’s about their sites, but I forgot to go and run my site.  I woke up freaking out that I had missed my time to leave to go run my site.

How has Bountiful Baskets changed your life?

I love Bountiful Baskets, I have made so many new friends because of Baskets.  I don’t know what my life would be like right now without baskets.

What do you do when you are not doing Bountiful Baskets?

I work full time at a local Hospital three days a week.  My days off are reserved to spend time with my family.

Tell us about your family?

I have been married 15 years, have 3 boys and 2 girls.

If you could have 1 super power… What would it be?

I would love to be able to control the weather.  I would have it be a perfect spring day every day!

How many baby giraffes did you contribute for last April?

:) The Giraffes were offered on a Tuesday, and I contributed on Monday. But when I saw that they were offered I was so bummed, because I would have contributed for 5.

Anything else you would like to share?

I love Bountiful Baskets, and the people that are a part of it with me.  I hope everyone else that contributes for baskets, new & old, have the same love for baskets that I do!
