The next stop on Good Shepherd Food Bank of Maine’s Apple Corps Ambassador Misty Coolidge’s #crushinghunger volunteer adventure was the Three Square Food Bank in Las Vegas, Nevada in November 2021.
Three Square Food Bank has been serving the residents of Lincoln, Nye, Esmeralda and Clark counties since 2007.
While volunteering, Misty spent the morning packing after-school boxes for children. Each box includes a mini cheese pizza, as well as a cup of peas, carrots and apple slices. That morning, 3,289 meals were assembled for the Food Bank’s program. Three Square Food Bank packs 3,000-5,000 boxes daily as part of the federal No Kid Hungry program. After being prepared, these boxes are distributed to local schools, YMCA’s, Boys & Girls Clubs, libraries, and recreation departments.
“This Food Bank had three exquisite buildings, a commercial demonstration kitchen for hosting chefs, a beautiful volunteer area, and various quotes throughout the facility. I love their tagline, ‘Together, we can feed everyone!’” shared Misty.
Misty’s next stop is North Carolina. If you’re interested in following Misty’s journey, you can find her on Facebook @MrsUSA2021 or follow along by visiting the Ambassador tag in the Latest News section of Good Shepherd Food Bank of Maine’s website, www.FeedingMaine.org.
