By Ellen Kurt

IOWA CITY, Iowa - Mary Palmberg knows that serving someone a meal involves much more than just food.

Palmberg coordinates volunteers at Iowa City's Free Lunch Program, making sure every person who arrives gets a good meal.

She works with 35 different teams of volunteers. Most come from area churches. Some drive in from communities such as Amana, Keota, and Wellman. They all know how important these meals are to the people they serve.

KCRG-TV9's Bruce Aune presents Monday's 9 Who Care Nominee, Mary Palmberg.
