I spent a good amount of time transcribing historical archives for the Smithsonian from home. This provided a way for me to serve the general public while at home during the COVID-19 quarantine where we are not allowed to go out and serve in other ways. I also helped out with the Newton South Baseball team by assisting dropping off hats to the players as they had their season canceled due to the outbreak.
This time at DCCK, I met a group of students from Ithaca College! They were coming down to DC for their own Alt Breaks trip and serving for DCCK for a couple of days. Today, we cut a whole lot of onions and picked apart parsley. It was fun to work with students who go to a different school than I do.
This time at DCCK, we made two full racks of coleslaw by tossing and mixing carrots and cabbage with coleslaw dressing and mayonnaise. This was a very messy job as we had to mix everything together and get our hands dirty, but it was fun at the same time!
I had a good time at DC Central Kitchen. I sliced and diced countless onions and opened a large number of fruit cans. I served with Bloomberg Industry Group and met a bunch of their employees as well.
