Our day started early in the morning with a service project at 8:30am. We took public transportation down to the work site but not until after our morning run! Unfortunately, we saw our first bus leave us behind before we could cross the street. Instead of waiting half an hour, we walked on to the next bus station which we had to run at the very end to catch.
We had a full day serving at Eloise’s Cooking Pot Food Bank in Tacoma. We helped organize shelves, stockroom, freezers, and new food and supply shipments.
The group also helped load bags for the next day which included apples, pears, potatoes, onions, and squash.
There were some good messes that needed fixin!
The food bank was very organized, included labels saying take two!
It took lots of teamwork, laughs, and effort to get through the day.
We even found a bull “stick” which was coveted and fought over, for it is quite a treasure!
Not all parts of a food bank are yummy…. expired food went into a bucket which consisted of a lot of baby food and formula.
We had a pack lunch outside on the sidewalk, where we sat chatting in the cool breeze with our croissants.
We also have our relaxing time after our hours of hard work!
After working from 8:30 to 3:00 with a few breaks, the group headed over to the community center for some swimming and showers before dinner.
