Around Thanksgiving, the New York Common Pantry provides a full Thanksgiving dinner to each of their clients. As NYCP serves many people, they had quite a task ahead of them, and needed help in order to actually be able to provide the dinners in a timely manner. Since many items would be provided in bags, and turkey would have to be wrapped in twine, we were put to the tasks of pre-openning bags, so the Pantry employees would not have to do so themselves, and cutting lengths of twine for the turkey wrappings. This experience made me consider the impact of being able to have a Thanksgiving dinner with family when food is often not available. I realized that by doing these small tasks, I was helping to speed the process of households becoming more food secure. This made me thankful for the experience as a whole.
