Bread House Week 34

Week 34 was crazy! We received a call from Destin Harvest, who was introduced to us by Larry (one of our customers from months ago), saying they had two food pallets for us. When the truck showed up, we received over six pallets of food. Luckily, we had some folks there to unload. We ran out of space in the kitchen. We stored some food outside in the fenced-in area for a couple of days and in the FLC's refrigerator and freezer. You could not believe our customers' excitement in wanting the fresh produce, which included pineapple, pomegranate, lettuce, Brussel sprouts, apples, and bananas. They were so appreciative of the food they received. Below are some pictures of the food delivery! We still need paper products and can goods!
