Service Day 3: Washington D.C.

We had an early wake up call again but I feel asleep right as we got back from the service dinner the night before and was well rested. We hopped on the metro and rode to the station where a van waited for us. We rode in the van to the Capital Area Food Bank. At this service site we did mostly indirect service meaning that we did things that would benefit people experiencing homelessness or food insecurities without a face to face encounter. Our job was to sort food that had been donated and make sure that it hadn’t been opened or expired. We volunteered with a group of workers from IKEA and each of their members were very energetic. This was a day that was more physically demanding but was worth it. I was able to help 100’s of people without every meeting them by sorting these items so that they could be repackaged and sent to them.
