BISC 1007 Food, Nutrition, and Service

I worked on Isabelle's sustainability project in Bell Hall. We painted a parachute together for the project "parachutes for progress."

While riding with a full time employee of Martha's Table to pick up the sandwich donation in Virginia, we discussed homelessness and food insecurity, and his past work for different organizations and living in a low-income community. Regarding this he said, "There is no reason for anyone to go without a meal in DC. There are so many opportunities here for folks to get a hot meal." I found this impactful, as the service I am doing helps to ensure this, and as someone coming from a low-income community, it was nice to hear that he is proud of the way his city is addressing food-related issues.

It was incredible to see new faces at the market and work with another volunteer from the DC community. The community members were delighted to see us.

I worked an AM shift for Martha’s Table, the AM Market. I noticed a few things, among them being that many people didn’t want the rice because it was brown rice. They said they don’t eat or cook with brown rice. Often, people refused both the rice and the beans. I find this very interesting given what we have been learning in class about whole grains and protein.
