Flying Samaritans volunteers at the San Diego Food Bank-Officer Test Run-October 31, 2015

Yesterday, officers (and non-UCSD volunteers) volunteered for 2 hours at the San Diego Food Bank in Mira Mesa. One group packaged different food items into 357 boxes for Seniors 60+ and over. Another group packaged onions into nets. This translates to 10,710 lbs of food with 3,000 lbs of onions; totalling 13,710 lbs of food in under 1.50 hours.

We deemed the project successful, fun, and rewarding. Thus, we will have these events available for our members to earn points towards clinic or just to volunteer to combat hunger in San Diego. Whatever your reasons, stay tuned for more events with the San Diego Food Bank.
