Yesterday, I drove up to Mill Creek with Malia and her family to help out with COTN's 285k Meal Marathon. The goal was to make 285,000 meals to fill a container to be shipped to Sierra Leone. At each station 5-7 people work to put the ingredients in a plastic bag - lentils, spice, chicken and rice. Then someone weighs each bag to make sure it falls between 390-400g. Then it the bag gets sealed and boxed up to go. We were there helping for a couple hours in the afternoon. My favorites - holding the bag...sealing...and weighing. It's funny to see how repetitive, mostly-mindless work can be so relaxing!
