No cost groceries at Rec Center

T.C. Heydon hands boxes full of food and essentials to One22 coworker Carey Stanley as they set up the no- cost grocery center in the Teton County Recreation Center in October. One22 partnered with the Rec Center in an effort to destigmatize access to free food programs.

Sharel Lund, the executive director of One22 Resource Center — a Jackson nonprofit created in 2016 when three local support organizations banded together — is quick to point out just how important volunteerism is to One22’s ability to function.

“Our volunteers really focus their activities on Jackson Cupboard — not entirely, but for the most part — and are absolutely critical to us being able to offer the wide range of services and accessibility of no-cost of groceries to the community,” Lund said in a recent interview. “There’s no way we could deliver these services without them.”
