Sam From ChicagoJanuary 20, 2016
One thing we are going to experiment with, in the near future, is audio podcasts from the food bank. The purpose is to bring you under our roof so you can see what, exactly, goes on here. Most people think we are just a food pantry and don't understand we are more comparable to a 50 million dollar company.
Earlier last week I ran into Sam who was volunteering at one of our 4 food pantries. He's a former golf pro from Chicago (AKA the Windy City). When Sam isn't working on his golf swing, he spends much of his free time volunteering at Harvest Hope.
It was really entertaining listening to him talk about his experience. Sam is a really nice guy who is really excited about working here at Harvest Hope.
Sam's personality really started to shine through the more I talked to him. He's good people! I'm glad that I took some time to get to know him a little better. Check out the audio recording of our conversation below.
Students From Meadow Glen Middle SchoolJanuary 15, 2016
Lexington One Meadow Glen Middle School is an Expeditionary Learning School that seeks to solve real world problems. As part of an 8th grade expedition entitled, "Take a Stand", the students worked together to reach a goal of collecting 2,015 non-perishable food items for Harvest Hope Food Bank as an effort to help those affected by the South Carolina flood of 2015. The students surpassed their goal, and on Friday, December 17, 2015, twenty-two 8th grade students traveled to Harvest Hope Food Bank on Shop Road to present their donations. Here are a few photos from the day!
