This experience was great! Though I missed the staff-friend I made, Ruth, I worked with the head chef (Ray) and a couple other people from GW (I knew one of them very well and we had no idea we'd be volunteering at the same time). We sliced raw beef to prep it for the beef stew, which we made later in the day. We emptied countless packages of pre-made stew to make it as big as possible. We had to troubleshoot and figure out what would be the most effective way to do so, as fast as possible. We figured out that squeezing the packages on the side of the container would be the fastest method. We organized frozen meats onto sheet pans and stacked them in the freezer. All in all, we communicated very well with each other. Again, the main issue was of space and territory, as we were working as a team of four in a confined space so if we ever collided there was a lot of "oohp, sorry!" especially because we're four young women. My only complaint was that cutting beef made me a bit queasy, but I was able to move past it by talking with the people I was working with.

Cut a lot of beef. Met some lovely people. It was a wonderful time. Wish I had known it would be my last.
