    Great meetup! Loved working alongside everyone that showed up at the food bank. Though the group there was quite small, we definitely did a lot of work. Our group plus all of the other volunteer groups and individuals today prepared 6515 lbs of food (5429 meals worth!) and saved the kitchen $1672! My only regret was that we didn't go out for lunch afterwards as a group. It would've been nice to talk to people outside of the volunteering environment.

    Hey guys- I need some assistance from anyone attending Saturday morning. My partner has had stroke and has been hospitalized. I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BE THERE SATURDAY. Any one who comes all you need to is just go to the reception area and sign in. It is a small area and easy to see and meet other members who are attending.

    If someone can take the lead, I would greatly appreaciate it.

    Thank you,
    Eddie Zomper

    Is this meetup at 1:00 or 8:00? The tag line says 8am and have lunch afterwards, the description says 1-4? If the time has been changed, can you update the tagline at the top also?
