Hairnets And Gloves

With all the excitement I almost forgot my other news. I got a job for the summer. It is with a non-profit in the same community where I used to work before being laid off in March. (Wow, I can't believe it has been that long.) It will be twenty hours a week from July through August. The position is running the summer lunch program in Lowell. I will oversee the teens making around 200 lunches a day. Then they are distributed to the summer day camps and recreation programs. This way all those children who get free lunch during the school year won't go hungry this summer. It should be a fun time with minimal stress. Loving that.
The other aspect of the job is to promote the Plant A Row program. It asks local farmers and home gardeners to plant an extra row this growing season. Then the extra produce is donated to the local food pantry. It's a nice way to get delicious fresh produce to the elderly and homebound. Last year when I worked at the center my teens actually produced a commercial for the program. So that will be airing on cable access channels too.
