m3028 is downsizing her life.
I attended a training session at Second Helpings in the beginning of the month. Here’s an excerpt from their website explaining what they do.
“At Second Helpings, we fight hunger and empower people. We rescue prepared and perishable food, re-prepare it into nutritious meals, and distribute those meals to over 50 social services organizations that feed hungry people. We also use rescued food to train disadvantaged adults for careers in the culinary field, helping to eliminate hunger at its source.
Since 1998, we have collected eleven million pounds of food and provided nearly 4.5 million meals to recipient agencies. More than 350 adults have graduated from our Culinary Job Training Program.”
My shift is every other Thursday 8:30 to noon. My role is to provide kitchen staff support. I.e- organizing donated food, preparing mass meals, and cleaning kitchen. I have yet to actually help out (my schedule starts next week), but I’m excited about this opportunity. Second helpings is an organization I feel really intune with.
