Another incredible day at Food & Friends! Always such fulfilling and rewarding work.
Served alongside my Alpha Delta Pi sisters to cook a meal for 15-20 RMH residents. This week we made a vegetable jambalaya with cornbread, and oatmeal cookies for dessert! As always, I had an amazing time not only cooking, but also enjoying fellowship with the RMH residents and families.
I spent my Friday night with a few of my sorority sisters cooking a meal for 15-20 residents of the Ronald McDonald House. RMH is our sorority's philanthropy, and it was my first trip visiting the house. It exceeded my expectations- the facilities are so beautiful, clean, and well-maintained, the staff is warm and friendly, and the families are surprisingly positive and outgoing giving their circumstances. We cooked a meal of blackened seasoned chicken breasts over cilantro quinoa with an avocado crema, a strawberry poppyseed salad, and apple pie cupcakes. I have to say, personally, it was one of the best meals I have ever made. And I think that's because I put so much love into it and because I was working alongside my sisters for a cause that is so dear to us. I can't wait to come back to RMH as soon as possible!!
Had an amazing volunteer experience packaging meals at Food & Friends in Fort Totten! I went with my best friend Anna, and we had so much fun helping the compassionate and friendly volunteers prepare meals to be sent out for the week.
Worked alongside my sisters to sell pasta to the GW community for RMHC!
I worked alongside my ADPi sisters to fundraise for our philanthropy, Ronald McDonald House. I had a lovely time selling various food items (pancakes, pasta, etc.) and organizing our pop-up shop to raise money for the kids and families that benefit from RMH!
