140th Week Update - Miles Neighborhood Food Collection Project

Hi Folks,
Answering Jacob’s Call

This week’s fruit, peanut butter and cereal all in a row.
The wind blew the nearly 6-foot stack of cereal over before I got this photo. One of the Community Food Bank’s crew helped me by holding the stack in place, then on my signal, stepped quickly out of the frame.

Last week, our first collection of cereal, fruit and peanut butter in response to a request by Jacob Coldsmith, the Logistics Manager at the Food Bank, was significant, too, but well below the wind barrier.

It is obvious cereal is way up, but so to was peanut butter and canned fruit. Notice that huge can of Dole pineapple. It’s bigger than the bunch of bananas in the background.

There is one more notable statistic to admire. Even with all of that cereal, our weight was 14 lbs. above our weekly average. Apparently Jacob’s concern that our weekly weight would drop if we concentrated on breakfast cereal is not a concern at all. How nice!

We collected a total of 182 lbs. of food. The money we donated amounted to $30.90, a $25.00 check and $5.90 in cash.

Just getting started a week ago.
This week’s normal glamour shot doesn’t tell
the whole story as emphatically as the first
photo above, but all of that cereal flowing out
of the cart is still impressive.
See you Sunday,
