When arriving at DCCK today, I was happy to find fellow classmates there and ready to serve. Today's experience was different from the last time I volunteered, which had me cutting potatoes. Today, Wayne, the culinary director for DCCK, had me place one hundred and fifty french toast into a frying pan in order to be served for breakfast tomorrow. Following that, I organized rice to be placed in the refrigerator. From there a fellow classmate and I opened roughly 32 to 40 cans of peaches to be served later that day. This was something interesting because growing up my mom never allowed me to open cans for fear of spilling food over the counter. I found opening cans and putting peaches into containers was rather therapeutic. Following that, I, along with another independent volunteer from Georgetown, proceeded to move meat from de-thawing in the sink to be placed in the refrigerator. This process proved to be challenging because of carrying heavy plastic bags of meat and having to drain the liquid from inside the bag. This process was smelly and unpleasant, but knowing that I was doing this for a better cause made it worth while. Overall, today's experience serving was wonderful and worthwhile. I had fun and I cannot wait to go back to DC Central Kitchen next Friday!
