I helped distribute groceries in East Side Austin to those who needed it. I also enjoyed saying hi to the people that received the groceries and working alongside the other volunteers. They were all really nice.

I did a job called expediting where I distributed the boxes of food to the tables where inspectors made sure it was fit to give to the pubic. It is always a good experience and I always learn a lot

Gave me a lot of insight on the community and just how much hunger we have in this city alone

I organized and ensured labels were correctly written. And placed a top on the boxes ready to be served to the community. Served up to 2000 pounds of food.

This is actual work that amounts to so much for the community. This organization feeds so many with just one shift and a few volunteers. We work in a warehouse sorting donations, cleaning, keeping it going, and it is for a great cause. I am so glad I can be an active volunteer for this organization.

I was what they called an expedite. My job was to give the inspectors the boxes of goods that were donated at their tables, replace them when they were done and take away the trash that could mount up. On top of that I moved the empty pallets that held the stacks of food before.

I was one of the many inspectors that assessed all the food that we were sorting. By the end of the 3 hours, we had sorted over 8,000 pound of food, over 200 meals total.

I helped with inspection of donated goods that met specific standards. It was a slow Monday morning but everything went well. I had experience volunteers as reference as to which goods were allowed to pass so that was helpful.

In this event I got to go with my mentees to Barton Creek mall to unbuild structures made by cans and sort and pack them and get them ready to be shipped. It was very fun.

I helped in the transition of donated food in getting to the inspectors or in other words I helped in the “expedite”. This required some physical labor and being on constant alert to see which tables were available to take more donated food for inspection. I had fun since it got my blood flowing.
