Monday Morning Meat-bag Makers

Every Monday we have a team of very dedicated volunteers come to sort food for our seniors. Each week they come in at 9:30 am & have a different task.

Some Mondays it is making non-perishable food bags (white ties & black ties), sometimes it is making bags of paper products (toilet paper, paper towels, & facial tissues), & today it happened to be meat. After the task is done for the day, the food sorters stock the shelves before leaving around noon.

Each senior receives a bag with 7 different selections of meat. Volunteers put 3 selections of poultry, 2 selections of beef, & 2 selections of pork into each bag.

Today the group ensured that we have 104 bags of meat ready for our next senior delivery day. Please let us know if you are interested in joining our friendly & fun Monday team.

Big thanks today for our volunteers who came in: Roland, Rita, Bob, Sue, Marilyn, Dawn, Mary, Diane, & Jessica. Also, thanks to Mike R. for picking up the meat for us from the food bank.
