Went to a feeding the homeless event. I helped to create a salad before the event. I helped with the setup of the event, during the event I was serving food and after the event I helped with take down and cleanup. This was such an amazing experience.
Had an hour long meeting with Sharon to work on the fundraising carrot thermometer that will go in the front of the future grocery store.
Had a meeting with Michelle discussing the final couple weeks of my internship and any remaining projects.
Worked on a blog post. Found a article/ blog post on how to cook a whole thanks giving dinner in the microwave including a whole turkey. I then wrote a blog post about it and edited till it sounded right and sent it to be reviewed.
Had a meeting with Dove. We discussed givepulse, the floor laying event, the carrot thermometer fundraising tracker.
I helped with setting up a meal service site on 4th street. I helped with putting together tables and setting them up. This site will be used as a place where anyone is able to sit down and eat a meal and that any group that wants to serve meals to the homeless will be able to feed them at the location.
I added the Feeding the Homeless event on givepulse to get volunteers for the event. I also added the draft of a blog post onto the On Common Ground website so that it will be published later on. I also did research to find the populations that are at risk of being/ becoming food insecure.
I researched and found a recipe that I wanted to write a blog post about. Then I wrote up the blog post. I found a post about cooking a whole thanksgiving dinner in a single crockpot. I wrote a blog post based off of it.
Had a discussion over phone call with a board member named Dove. We discussed multiple subjects. We discussed the crowd source meeting that is taking place next Wednesday. We also discussed the fundraising tracker. We also discussed setting up a date and time for getting volunteers to set up the floors in the future site of the grocery store. I was also the Subject Matter Expert on the phone call about getting volunteers to sign up and attend future volunteer opportunities.
