One of FFC's members, Marie, spends an evening every month at Marion Polk Food Share sorting food to go out to the various food pantries in town. Several of Marie's teenage kids usually go along with her. Tonight they were otherwise occupied - so Alivia and I went along as her 'kids'. It was good work. There are standards for what they can accept - so we were inspectors as well as sorters. Among all the generosity, it is obvious that some people are clearing out cupboards that should have been cleared out decades ago. But most of the food that we had to put in the 'unusable' barrel would have still been a treat for those Quaker orphans in Rwanda.
When are they going to get that teleporter invented!
