How was the project implemented?
The team first received our project at the Class VIII retreat. We met with the Executive Director and drilled won on what she and the food bank exactly needed. We came ot the conclusion that manpower, funds and food and supplies were the primary need for the MAFB. We successfully coordinated fund drives in our respective places of employment, and also partnered with some of our local grocery stores to conduct food drives.
