Meeting the employees

An update from Matt:

This break has been one full of opportunity. Our group has had the opportunity to learn the inner workings of a great organization and also help it in its mission to feed the critically ill around New York and Jersey. I personally also had the opportunity to sit in on an employee meeting today concerning organic food labeling and its impact.

As a pre-med student with a background in public health and nutrition, I loved this opportunity to learn more about this important issue and interact with the professionals behind this great nonprofit. The employee meeting was a luncheon, with great food and great company. Everyone was very open and friendly and showed their appreciation for our group coming to volunteer.

With so many people relying on their organization, they can use all the help they can get to make and deliver the nutritious meals to the chronically ill. It was a great opportunity, which has been part of a great trip.
