Our group chose the Central Virginia Food Bank. We arrived at the location on a beautiful spring day.
Surprisingly, I was the only one who had thought to bring a camera. Well, except all the cell phones with cameras. I tried to get photos of everyone helping out and a group shot.
Mike and Pat giving the traditional USC victory sign before we started our 3 hour shift.
Covering hot food.
Pat and I were bagging bread with little cups of spread.
Scooping coleslaw into cups. Later the staff fired up a machine that heat sealed some plastic over the cups. Pretty interesting actually.
By the time we were done we were all very happy to have degrees from a good university. Cutting, bagging and sealing loaf upon loaf of bread wasn't very stimulating. Of course, I was extremely happy I am retired. The staff was so appreciative of our efforts. Pat and I were totally exhausted and I don't think I've recuperated yet! I'm quite happy to make charity quilts rather than pack food.
