we filled Food distribution bags

Today our main focus was on food insecurity, so we started our day off with helping the church members unload vans filled with food from the food bank and then packing up bags of food for local families.  It was amazing to me how much food there was, as we tag teamed to lug over huge bags of potatoes and carrots!  We found out that they do this amount of work to provide 170 families with food every single week, and this was another ministry at Our Lady Queen of Peace that impressed me with their dedication to their community.  We had so much fun going through the line putting the food into the reusable bags and even individually packaging up the rice and beans.  I appreciated the focus this church has on supporting these families with healthy choices while upholding their dignity!     Amanda Adams
