This was the second time I volunteered at the Sac Food Bank with my peers. This time we volunteered at a different location and helped through different tasks. My task was to make bags of light bulbs and distribute them to the people. My peers worked in truck, they bagged dairy products. It was interesting working along other people from different locations. The other task I did was bagging the appropriate squash. Some of the squash was ruined so as I bagged the squash I had to analyze and toss the bad squash away. Later, I unfolded the boxes. As other volunteers distributed the food items, it looked like a mini farmers market. Overall, this experience was great because we got to meet new volunteers as well as contribute by using our skills.
