Approximately 13,000 people come to the Food Bank for Larimer County every month to pick up basic food items that they cannot afford. It takes someone with genuine compassion to care for the individuals who pass through those doors each day. The Food Bank has found that in veteran volunteer Tina Deringer.
In an attempt to put her gratitude for the Food Bank for Larimer County into words, Kitt Caylor gathers her thoughts. Caylor started using the Food Bank in 2004 after a run-in with the West Nile virus that left her ill for three years.

On a windy day in November, Kitt Caylor sits at her favorite bookstore, Anthology, sipping on a cup of coffee. She looks like any other 69-year-old woman.
