Meals From the Heartland

Last week I had an opportunity thru work to volunteer at Meals From the Heartland. This is an organization that packages meals (soy, dried vegetables, vitamin tablet, and rice) to feed starving people around the world. They package meals year-round, but once a year they have a large event to package millions of meals. 
Friday morning a group of us headed downtown to help out. Above is a picture overlooking the packaging floor. Reminder: take sticker off shirt before putting in the wash. I speak from experience. 
Here is half of our team during the event. It was easy to do and is great for kids and adults. Aren't the hair nets lovely! We had a great time and hope to do it again next year.

It's great that Pioneer and all the other employers give their employees time off to do such a worthwhile project.

And yes, the hair nets do look lovely!! :-)
