Volunteering at the Oregon Food Bank

Frozen peas were on the menu at the Oregon Food Bank on November 10th. Back in November, the M Realty staff, agents, and I  got together and volunteered at the Oregon Food Bank in Beaverton. We had a great time helping out in any way we could, so we scooped and weighed those frozen peas while chatting away about holiday plans. Along with the rest of the volunteers that Saturday, here are the impressive stats we contributed to:

  • 10,703 pounds of peas packaged
  • 8,233 meals created
  • 123 meals packaged per volunteer

Not bad for two hours of work on a Saturday! It was really easy to sign up and volunteer for groups, individuals, and kids. Click here to learn more about volunteer opportunities in the Portland area.

We'll be heading out to do another session in the "cold room" in February, I'd love to bring you along!
