We were gifted #purpose days at work. Today, three colleagues and I used one of our purpose mornings to help pack lunches for kids in Calgary who might otherwise not eat.
It is pretty hard to learn when your stomach is growling.
We were PB&J (nut-free PB) sandwich ninjas. 🎉👍
I have participated in a number of #volunteer opportunities during my corporate years, and i have to say this one was fun! The brown bags are decorated by students or a note of encouragement is placed in the plastic bags.
Music was playing, we were grooving and it was probably one of the most efficient kitchens I have been in (and i was in the restaurant industry for years) We became a finely tuned machine.
There was even time for #coffee and stories about the students' lives being impacted 😁
And I learned a thing or two. I have caught my kids sneaking food for friends and said 'stop that! This #singlemama can't feed your friends too' . Now I will ask more questions and see if we should instead be talking to their teacher to get their friends the nutritional support that is available and that they may need 🤔
Not only did we help make 1,108 lunches for local kids that received them at school today, we prepped the veggies, fruits and baked goodies for tomorrow's lunches.💪
AND each day @bb4ck feeds 4,200 kidsat Calgary schools! ❤️❤️❤️
