Real Life

Hello, I went to my first Market on the Move last Saturday at the Baptist church on 59th Avenue.It was fun. I shared the 20 pounds of green beans with friends at church on Sunday morning. I just gave my sister some of the oranges and I tried acorn squash for the first time. Hi Ethel, In October 2011, I was handed a flyer about M.O.M from a work associate of my daughters. After looking it over, I thought it was not for me, since I was a single person and could never use that much produce. I later decided to go to one of the churches the next Saturday just to observe. After seeing the quality of the produce, I decided, that I could get it and share with several families who are struggling. And that is exactly what I did. On my second Saturday trip, I decided to become a member, and what a great value that is. It has become a fun project for me and I have met some of the nicest people. Some are helpers from the churches and some are standing in line like me. One was the semi driver, who brings the produce in, and he was helping the customers as well as doing his job. It was a pleasure to talk to him and to the many church and school helpers that work at putting out the produce. I have had numerous experiences and all of them positive. I personally appreciate what you have given to our community. Helping to put an end to waste and helping put healthier food on the table for struggling families. I will pray that this program continues and for many blessing to come the way of the 3000 club. God bless You, Sandy
