Harry Baulisch: A Rural Food Shelf

Harry Baulisch is the manager of the Mary and Martha Food Shelf in Westbrook, MN.  Mary and Martha is part of the Western Community Action Partnership, a group of food shelves that utilize volunteers to provide nutrition assistance to individuals and families using the “client choice” model.  People are able to select the foods that they and their families need and will use, increasing the usefulness of what is given to them. He talks about how he became involved in the food shelf and the need for food shelves in rural areas where access to food is limited. He also discusses the need for jobs in rural areas to lift people out of poverty.
