Yesterday was the second of two Saturdays devoted to packing all of the Rainbow Food Boxes for the fall food runs. This is a big job so we were pleased to have a good turnout of volunteers to help. There were no large groups today but many regular volunteers, a number of new volunteers, and several family groups made up just the right number to get the job done.
Each food packing event starts with a Circle in which we dedicate ourselves to the service of the Elders who will receive the fruits of our efforts.
A bit more than half of the food boxes were packed last week, but there were still large supplies of the various food items stacked around the perimeter of the warehouse awaiting the "shoppers" to come by with their carts to fill the boxes.
Here, Jessica who is an expert now after having attended her first day of packing last week, showed Hennie how to fit everything into the boxes.

Many thanks to everyone who helped us yesterday.
