Barbara "Bobbie" Hemmings moved to Milton with her husband, John, in February of 2019 but had begun volunteering at the pantry even before officially moving here. She retired in 2017 after teaching middle school and elementary Spanish in Mountainside, NJ for 25 years. Those Spanish skills have proven to be a valuable asset in helping those of our clients who have limited English.
In February of 2020, Bobbie became treasurer for the MCFP. Her many years as bookkeeper for her family's business and as treasurer for the Mountainside Education Association provided a wealth of experience for this position particularly as the pantry pursues grants and aid which will help the MCFP to expand and grow.
Bobbie and her husband are happy to have the opportunity to serve their new community here in Milton. The many dedicated volunteers who make up the MCFP are amazing people. It is an honor to work alongside them.
