Last week, two MSPL students and Cathi and I spent a couple of hours volunteering at the Northern Indiana food bank. That place is MASSIVE — I had no idea how big it is, or how many people and agencies it services. It’s two floors of a gigantic warehouse, all dedicated to storing and distributing food to those in need.
Our job was to prepare meals for students to take home over the weekend so they don’t go hungry. As you can see in the picture below, the Food Bank has a great system set up — you go down one side, where Rose and Travis are, putting one of each item into a bag, and then tie the bag up and drop it in the bin at the end. Repeat on the other side (demonstrated by Cathi).
