gather. share. nurture.

wednesday we spent the morning at the vermont food bank.
we started off building boxes and packing food in those boxes.

we packed about 400 boxes of food. those boxes included sunshine veggies, yams, mixed fruit, cereal, evaporated milk, some tomatoes, oats, noodles, and peanut butter. we lined up assembly style and went from there. the boys helped restock our areas while we packed all the boxes.

after a break we sorted food that has been removed from the shelves of grocery stores. it was a little different, but interesting to see how much food we throw out that is perfectly good. it's awesome seeing what we can do and how many people we can feed.

although the people were not christians, and the organization was not based off of their love for the Lord, we were able to be the hands and feet of Jesus yesterday. we could put the love of Christ in those boxes, WITHOUT putting tracks in the boxes (STUART DAVIDSON).

i love this trip so far.

today is ben and jerry's. and burlington.
