Meet Volunteer Extraordinaire Janice

Janice Ortbring gets the title of Volunteer Extraordinaire for her extreme Yellow Door volunteerism. Together with hubby Todd, Janice opens her home every Thursday and her home becomes, essentially, Yellow Door. Indeed, her yellow front door inspired this local foodie hangout's moniker.

Janice (and Todd) own Edgar Norman Creative, a creative agency based in Chelsea. A fan of everything Chelsea, Janice shares some of her most intimate thoughts... on volunteering.

So, Janice, why do you volunteer at Yellow Door?

The community. I love seeing happy faces gather around the doors (the Yellow Door tables). I enjoy telling and listening to stories, meeting new friends and, of course, eating! It's also fun when musicians show up!

Do you have any words of wisdom to share with others about getting involved?

Just do it! It feels like hanging out with friends, both new and old. Invest as much time as you can afford, learn about food and food sources, and help improve the process. The more, the merrier at Yellow Door!
