Going bananas

It wasn’t my day to glean, but Helping Feed Atlanta’s Friday volunteer, Dave Miller gave me a call this morning from Costco. His SUV couldn’t hold all the banana’s being donated. I was there within an hour with the big van to load and distribute to a couple organizations we deliver to. Hip hip hooray! Advertisements

A feast of lanterns

HFA’s two van drivers, Bruce and myself, picked up produce today and our gleaning yielded bounty from both sides of the spectrum. Bruce, not so much, and me, a full van full. So overall, we did pretty good. As we say in the biz, everyday can not be a feast of lanterns.

Not complaining

It was mighty cold this morning but I’m not complaining because I delivered 1500 lbs of donated produce to Malachi’s Storehouse. All that from only three Whole Foods Markets locations!!!

New year, new volunteer

Happy New Year everyone! A new year and a new volunteer for Helping Feed Atlanta, and this time it was my bro in law, Howard Shevitz. H was a big help, not only because it would have taken me twice as long without him and it was nice hanging out with him but he saved…
