Wordless Wednesday: Foot At First

Recently, in my Agronomy 342: World Food Issues class, we had an enthusiastic speaker from an Ames organization called Food at First. This impressive group of 100% volunteers diligently prepare seven hot meals per week as part of a free, no questions asked service to the local community. The majority of food served comes as donations from area retailers and the ISU cafes or dining system. Fresh fruits and vegetables are also gleaned from farmer's fields and the organization has recently started a small garden that contributes a bit of fresh produce. I look forward to featuring this group on the blog more in the future, but for now, enjoy this Wordless Wednesday post of the delicious and nutritious meals they provide as well as the hardworking people that make it all possible.

I look forward to sharing more with you about these inspiring volunteers and their impact on the surrounding community. If you're looking for an opportunity to get involved, please check out their Facebook page. Thanks for reading!
