I went to Bread for the City for my service site. What we do at Bread for the City is sort through produce for food quality and place produce in bags for people in need. It is fun working in the food pantry because I am with my friends in my circle group. Some of the products we put in bags were potatoes, cherries and other nonperishable items. Today we worked on sorting cabbage and shucked corn.
My reaction to this service site changed the way I look at food. I am fortunate to have enough food on my plate everyday while some people out there struggle and don’t have enough food for a day. I am happy that I can help the community and others around me. I really have enjoyed my time here at Impact DC and have made friends that I will keep for a life time.
Impact DC is a great program. Tomorrow we are going to Capitol Hill to lobby for congress which will be a lot of fun and educational. We only have a few more days left but, I am making every day count and will come back and bring everything I learned home to my chapter.
