Naice Bell is a retired surgical nurse, so it’s no surprise that she enjoys helping others. As a member of Plymouth United Church of Christ, she initially joined the food ministry. Her service has moved outside the church, and she has now been volunteering to help provide families in need with food for nearly two years.
Naice is married to Detroit Police Commissioner Willie Bell, and their two adult daughters, Ashanti and Ayobami, work alongside her volunteering. She also gets some occasional help from her two young grandchildren. Naice picks up, packs boxes, and makes deliveries twice a week regularly regardless of the weather. Naice also enjoys sharing her ideas for preparing meals out of the donated food with residents. Born and raised in Hernando, Mississippi, she’s still a southerner at heart, and cooking is one of her favorite past times. Now, she’s helping ensure more families have food to eat and have healthier options.
