A Conversation with The Food Soldier Roshelle Pate


Earlier this month, Roshelle Pate was named the honoree of this year’s Spirit of Columbus Award on behalf of the work she and thousands of others are doing to feed food-insecure neighbors throughout the community.

The Food Soldier network, where community members share free food and ask for help when needed, is 15,000 members strong. It's all about neighbors helping neighbors by supporting one another through difficult times.

Recently, Roshelle sat down with the Foundation to reflect on her passion for helping others and how she became The Food Soldier.

Watch the interview, and see the inspirational qualities that embody the true Spirit of Columbus and exhibit the essence of community.
