A group of 10 Knights (including family) volunteered from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Great Plains Food Bank on March 12th. We got a brief tour of the facility before splitting into teams to package 320 pounds of cereal into one-pound bags for needy families. We bagged the cereal, weighed it, sealed it, labeled it and boxed it on a pallet.GPFB_2

The cereal will be distributed throughout the region. Per the Great Plains Food Bank estimates: 320 pounds of food at 1.2 pounds per meal equates to 266 meals. It will feed a family of four for 22 days. Not bad for 90 minutes of work.

We hope to schedule something similar in the future with the hopes of making it a regular volunteer outing for our council.

Contact Dave Nilles if you would like to be involved in future volunteer efforts at the Great Plains Food Bank.
