Following delivery of the food to the warehouse, we must pack it into the Rainbow Food Boxes for delivery on the upcoming food runs. This is one of the major work events of the year at ANE and took place on the last two Saturday mornings.
The scenario remains relatively constant from food packing to food packing - volunteers circle the warehouse with shopping carts to fill the boxes with the designated items, filled boxes are taped shut and receive their labels, and the boxes are stacked by food run area.
Two of the new faces this time belong to a pair of very nice young brothers, Cristian and Ulices Garcia. They have been regulars at Tuesday and Friday volunteer days this summer, but this was their first food packing.
Although they are still very young Kade and Zoe count as seasoned volunteers by now. With Kade supervising Jello distribution and Zoe helping load boxes, these two bring smiles everywhere they go.
Other faces include:
Regular volunteers Sandy and Dean Sanders helped to break down the empty boxes.
