Good Deed Leads to Another

April 24, 2014

On MLK Day our community came together with Kids Against Hunger and did an important thing by packaging 156,816 meals for people in need. Unnoticed, a smaller good deed also happened that day. The meal project used up about 300 bags of rice; these large bags are made from woven plastic. We diverted these bags for recycling rather than sending them to a landfill. It was “only” 40 pounds of plastic–but it reflects a thoughtful decision and an important lesson for us all.
