Today was a big day as it marked the first day that PVs as a group volunteered together since March of 2020. There were seven volunteers who spent time at Food Lifeline in Seattle gathering produce into bags. The produce was donated from grocery stores and farmers in the area and the volunteers grabbed a variety to create and 10-12 pound bag that was distributed later in the day directly to people in need. Ordinarily Food Lifeline gathers donated food items, sorts them, and then redistributes them to local non-profits such as food banks, feeding programs and shelters. During the pandemic they have been helping to distribute directly to people as well since many of the the food banks have not been able to be open. It was so nice to get out and volunteer together again. Thank you to the volunteers that participated today!
