Recently i got to do some Volunteering at the NSW Food Bank.
FoodBank is a not for profit organization established in NSW in 1992.
Last year alone, FoodBank rescued 32 million kilos of food destined to be dumped and turned it into for over 40 million meals!
Today I had the honor of assisting in the packing process of products and produce in preparation for its despatch to destinations across NSW and the ACT.
I was given an insight into the inner workings of the organization and a behind the scenes look at how their community involvement directly benefits the individuals they assist through food donations.
While my AGP sash couldn't be worn within the warehouse due to OH&S policies I was able to take pictures outside and tell others (including the drive by coffee man) all about Australia Galaxy Pageants and what it represents.
... I even got to enjoy this amazing experience with my NSW 'team mate', Miss Teen Hawkesbury Galaxy, Brittnee Sheath.
