Food Packaging at Second Harvest Heartland*

This was pushed back and hour to allow people to get to the event.  Please make sure you're there at 6, not 5 pm

 

We will be packaging bulk food items (pasta, rice, etc.) into smaller packages that will be sent to Second Harvest's distribution centers in the metro area. This is a two-hour commitment from 6:00-8:00 PM on a Wednesday in Minneapolis.

More info about the organization: [url=www.2harvest.org]Second Harvest Heartland[/url] [b]Parents may bring their children ages 14 and up.[/b]

    I felt great this morning. Perhaps I should consider producing a series of corn-related exercise videos. :D

      Dave, you made me laugh. My 14 year old granddaughter said she was sore last night!! We older folks seem to do just fine with physical activitiy! Volunteering is good for the body and soul.

    Three and a half tons of corn bagged! I (and my back) can believe it. I'm gonna sleep good tonight. :)

    Good job, everyone!

    We packed 7,560 lbs of good corn tonight, about 20 volunteers from Good Deeds, Verizon, Target and other groups combined.

    Is it okay to bring a 14 year old? I thought it would be a good introduction to volunteer work.

      Yes, I think children over 10 are able to participate. You'll need to sign a waiver on behalf of the child.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
