In pursuit of the goal to assist our Elders, the delivery of food, both in the form of food boxes as well as food certificates is central to our mission. As we get ready for the fall food runs, the first step in preparing to pack the Rainbow Food Boxes is to get the food to the warehouse. C.J. had worked out the order with a Walmart several miles away, and yesterday it was time to move it. Boyd Mitchell, who is practiced at this activity, rented a large Penske truck, and in the course of two round trips the food arrived at the warehouse and then had to be moved to designated spots around the periphery of the warehouse and unloaded from the pallets.
Waiting for the first truckload, some of us quickly realized that we had missed the memo about the proper attire for the day.
Maneuvering the pallets off the truck is tricky, but Boyd is highly skilled at this and had no trouble .
Tony is working here on an inventory of the delivered food,
