See you later…

August 25, 2010


This summer has really moved along quickly, and it’s not really registering that the new adventure that I am about to embark on is almost here.  Eeeek!  With my work life winding down,  I’m feeling  mixed about my departure…You see, my coworkers and volunteers have been my work family for over 2.5 years. My daily rituals will no longer be familiar ground. I won’t be asked if I am “okie dokie”;  there won’t be the unspoken race to answer the phone on the first ring among us intake workers, (I never seem to win), and i won’t be calling out “hamper-rama” to the hamper packers.

My time as an intake worker has provided me with continuous learning, it has given me many skills that I can tuck in my pocket and bring along with me to school. Whether learning about various  eating habits from different cultures, to working daily with the many faces of our community who deal with the never-ending cycle of food insecurity.  I value each experience I’ve had, since it has brought me to where I am today.

I am grateful to everyone I’ve encountered at Food Hampers… for welcoming me with open arms, and for extending their friendship along the way.  I’m not really saying good-bye, it’s more of a see you later…
