This shift was a kitchen tidy up shift. Most of the work being done was just little tasks but I do recognize the importance in doing them. Without people coming in to help clean the kitchen, the cooking couldn't be done as safely and effectively.

I was a part of a Food Tidy Up Shift at Martha's Kitchen for 2 hours. We spent the first part of the shift sorting cans from the Martha's Table van into different categories; canned meat, vegetables, tomatoes, soup, beans, pasta, etc. Then, we brought these cans into the indoor pantry and outdoor shed. Afterward, I spent time sweeping out "McKenna's Wagon" while the other 3 volunteers with me wiped off the tables and scrubbed the backmost part of the van. Finally, we swept the kitchen floor.
