Nick’s Service Day Reflection

On Tuesday, April 19, my advisory went to the New York Common Pantry. We took the 6 train to the Pantry and almost instantly began working. We were broken up into groups of two, with each group being assigned a different task around the pantry. The jobs included stacking, creating assorted food bags to give out, organizing, and more.

Working at the New York Common Pantry was not only a fun experience, but also was a meaningful one as well. I learned how some single mothers come to the pantry with as many as 14 children to feed, and how this pantry has played such a major role in its area. It’s a job that requires constant effort, and proved to me how willing the people working at the Pantry are to do this everyday.

  1. Great post, Nick. Being a part of the inside workings of a food support program requires muscle and compassion. It’s great that you were willing to throw yourself into this worthwhile program with such energy.
