A group of AWOL participants spent Saturday working with Food Net. Food Net is a local non-profit group that has been in Lincoln for 31 years serving the community perishable foods (breads, fresh bakery items, produce, dairy) collected from grocery stores and restaurants in the community. Food Net serves at 18 locations 7 days a week.
Site leader Ashley Meiners reflects, “It was awesome to see so many people take a little time out of their game day to support others. We worked at two locations and both were entirely different experiences, which was majorly impacted by the neighborhood that the churches were in. To end the day, we unloaded twelve 7 foot tall pallets of donations at Center for People in Need. The donations will be free to people and to whoever needs them. It was a humbling experience to see the grateful people accepting the generosity of others.”
