I wrote a letter to the Birchmere. I emailed it to Dr. Scully and also attached it to this impact. It was interesting to learn more about the detrimental environmental and financial impacts of bottled water use and free tap water distribution. I hope the Birchmere implements our solution or thinks of another one.
I volunteered at the Joyful Food Market for the last time today. I made cabbage slaw for the third time; I consider myself an expert now! The kids really liked it today, probably more than ever!! I will miss volunteering at the markets but will definitely be back.
I enjoyed serving at this Joyful Food Market, however, it was not my favorite experience thus far. I was the only volunteer who showed up, despite the large number of people who registered. Not very many kids showed up either because there was a big school field trip to the zoo. I ran the food education table and made cabbage slaw. Most of the kids were willing to try the slaw and many of them liked it! Food education is my favorite activity to do at the markets!!
As always, I loved volunteering at a Joyful Food Market! The Martha's Table employees, community members, and fellow volunteers are so genuine, hardworking, and dedicated to the organization's mission and values. Today, I made and served cabbage slaw to students, many of whom were 3- or 4-years-old. So cute!
