As committed volunteers of the Brazos Valley Food Bank, Clarence and Viola Vitopil have been making a significant difference in the fight against hunger in the Brazos Valley since 1988.

Volunteering with the Brazos Valley Food Bank 20 hours per month for the past 23 years, Clarence and Viola have selflessly collected bread and bakery items in their personal vehicle every Wednesday and Thursday from HEB and Albertson's at an average of 600 pounds/week.

The Vitopils have single-handedly ensured that over the years, more than 715,000 pounds of bread has been distributed through the food bank and nourished the bodies and minds of children and families across the Brazos Valley.
