Second Helpings CSGC Grant

azusi22 – July 8, 2019

After completing my first two official weeks at Second Helpings, there are many things I have discovered that have impressed me and peaked my interest even more. One of these is the attention to detail that the people in the kitchen exhibit. From changing gloves after each new job to promote cleanliness, to personally checking every food container to make sure it is the freshest it can be, the “behind the scenes” of this operation is very impressive. My favorite part of Second Helpings so far is interacting with those receiving meals. At the beginning I wasn’t sure what to expect, but as the weeks go on I have already learned some of their names, received a sort a chainmail promoting positivity titled a “Letter of Love”, and have loved seeing and hearing their genuine gratefulness, making me see truly how much this is impacting their lives. I look forward to this every week now, and I am excited to see what the rest of the summer holds in regards to Second Helpings.
