We woke up early and made the six hour drive to volunteer at the San Diego Food Bank. We are immeasurably grateful to Xavier Hernandez, Volunteer Coordinator at the San Diego Food Bank for making room for two more volunteers even though he had a full volunteer team in place (yay San Diego community!). The food bank is a huge operation with a huge mission. We helped box food that will ultimately be distributed to nearly 800 elderly citizens in the San Diego area.

We stopped by the Fairbanks Foodbank to see how the organization and volunteers were serving the community in one of our farthest flung stops so far. Like the other foodbanks we’ve visited along the way, we found an energetic and compassionate group dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of others and it inspired us to join in and help. Thanks to everybody in Fairbanks for being so warm and inviting.

We visited the Oregon Foodbank in Portland, Oregon where we met a dedicated group of volunteers that not only work hard together, but also spend time together outside of the warehouse. They were a truly welcoming and loving community and it was hard not to immediately share in their spirit.

I had an opportunity to visit the Idaho Foodbank in Boise to see their operations. Within that massive warehouse, there’s a lot of magic going on. In addition to sorting donations, I also had a chance to learn about their innovative backpack program that helps fight child hunger in school kids. This was such a beautiful experience and I won’t soon forget it. Such a loving and dedicated group of people.Big thanks to Teena, Mike, and everybody else there!
