Utah Food Bank Time

Today, I took a couple of hours to volunteer at the Utah Food Bank.  

This is a great organization that every year provides about 34 million pounds of food to people who don’t have enough of it in Utah.

Today, our project was to take tons of donated granola (from Dannon) that was packaged to go on top of yogurt (that could not be donated) and simply repackage it into bundles of 20 with a makeshift nutritional label.

I didn’t get a good measure, but with a group of 20 volunteers, I’m guessing we processed on the order of a ton of granola in two hours.

At the same time, another group of about 30 volunteers, all from one church, tackled another project.

What will you do this week to leave your mark on the world?

Today at the Utah Food Bank with had filled grocery 360 grocery kits for low income seniors.  It was great to see how quickly we were able to set this up.  The food for this program comes from the Federal Government; the Utah Food Bank and its volunteers are responsible for the distribution.

Utah Food Bank: Our Cause of the Week

Utah Food Bank:  Our “Cause of the Week”

We’re kicking off our weekly program of choosing a cause with the Utah Food Bank.  I try to volunteer for a couple hours each week at the Utah Food Bank.  Each year, they collect and distribute over 30 million pounds of food.  They provide the food to hungry families around the entire state, often working with local food pantries.

Visit UtahFoodBank.org to learn more or make a donation.

We’ll donate $3.00 to the Utah Food Bank this week for every copy of Your Mark On The World for the Kindle that we sell on Amazon.com.
