Recently, Apogee Search’s team of do-gooders returned to the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas (CAFB) for more volunteering and food processing fun. CAFB relies on the kindness and strong backs of their volunteers to fulfill their mission of nourishing the hungry people of Texas and leading the community in ending hunger. Currently, they provide food and grocery products to more than 350 partner agencies in 21 Central Texas counties.
Once again, the enthusiastic and grateful CAFB employees and other volunteers made us feel welcomed and essential. Previously, we worked in the 60,000 square foot warehouse sorting and processing canned goods, and on another occasion, non-essential items such as toys, makeup, and cleansers. On this particular afternoon, we had the opportunity to learn something new and processed a South Beach Dieter’s nightmare, bread and pastries. It was an enjoyable experience to sort through the varieties of delectable desserts and bread products at the CAFB, knowing that each item contributes to helping to feed the hungry in Central Texas.
At the end of our 3 hour shift, we processed 4,586 pounds of food, which translates into 3,669 meals for those in need. We hope that those in need enjoy eating the delicious baked goods as much as we enjoyed processing them.
