2600 MEALS IN 2 HOURS AT ALL FAITHS FOOD BANK!
On February 17th, Ringling Volunteers participated in an All Faiths Food Bank food sorting project. All Faith’s Food Bank is a local non- profit organization whose mission is to “Feed those in need, reduce food waste, and educate the community as to the issue of hunger and nutrition” (http://www.allfaithsfoodbank.org/). The Food Bank reduces food waste by reclaiming the food that might otherwise go into our landfills.
The volunteers were charged with the task of sorting through bins of donated food, separating the damaged or expired items from the good, sorting them into their appropriate boxes, and preparing them to be shipped out. Our 10 volunteers served for 2 hours, and provided over 2,600 meals for local families in need!
Thank you to our volunteers and to All Faiths Food Bank for hosting us in this successful community service program!
