So many smiling faces today! I was able to help distribute to-go lunches at my elementary school. It was fabulous. Everyday this week the number of children served has gone up by 50 lunches. I would anticipate that as more people are home and not receiving pay checks that this count could increase exponentially.
The cafeteria workers were so grateful to have some assistance. Three women stayed in the kitchen cooking and packaging the meals. Two cafeteria workers helped manage the drive thru line, and three teachers volunteered outside in the line.
It was so good to see some of my own students wave and smile back at me. The families were appreciative of this service being provided. I can't wait to return on Friday! I felt like I had some purpose again.
