Today, the fourth graders from All Saints made their way back to the Oregon Food Bank for a food repack volunteer shift. The food of the day was pinto beans. We scooped, poured, weighed, tied, and boxed a few thousand pounds of beans over the course of an hour and a half shift.
At the end of our shift, we were given a tour of the Eastside Learning Garden to get a glimpse of how the OFB grows its own food for distribution. Our guide was nice enough to give us a few helpings of vegetables along the way. The samples of purple broccoli and collard greens were quite delicious.
Below is a brief slideshow chronicling the latest visit to our favorite place to volunteer:
