We had some wonderful UW nursing students volunteer at the food bank. I asked them what they thought of their experience and this is what a few of them had to say:
“It is very humbling to see that anyone, all walks of life, can use some help at some time in their life.”
“My parents came from nothing and experiencing and meeting others who came from nothing has given me a glimpse into what my parents went through, also very humbling.”
“I was talking with a mother who was SO Proud that her daughter was able to attend the UW, it is humbling to think about all the sacrifices she must have made. Considering how much my parents have scrimped and scraped to be able to send me to school.”
As you might imagine, the end of the year for the Food Bank, is a very busy time of the year. With the generous donations and help from the community we were able to have special holiday distributions for families and friends to gather around a special holiday meal. In November 963 families and in December 897 families came by for these holiday distributions. These special distributions included food and ingredients like: milk, eggs, turkey, ham, sugar and oil for homemade cookies, olives, pumpkin and desserts. We hope everyone enjoyed this holiday season with families and friends.
