Community Helpers

Today we worked at a local food bank that is housed at the church that we attend. The children really love unpacking boxes from the Food Mover's truck and then stocking the shelves in the food bank. Jeffrey has learned to work the entire program and can check people in, pack orders and often helps families with carrying their food to their car. The other 3 love packing orders and stocking shelves. The shelves are marked with a small ticket that list family size and how much of a particular item that the family can have. The lady who runs the program has it so organized that even my pre-schooler and first grader can pack orders if they are told how many people are in the family. It gives the children so much joy to work at the food bank. They grin so hard that it just makes everyone that comes in smile right along with them.
