Bishop's Storehouse

Ed and I spent all day Saturday at the Bishop's Storehouse in Washington, DC. I had never worked there before. It was interesting and enjoyable work. We filled orders for food as people came in, and also restocked shelves as necessary. They only carry a small range of items, so they need re-stocking frequently as people take items. It gave you new respect for supermarkets and the work they do to keep the shelves looking great.

We didn't think to bring a lunch, but they gave us peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, which really hit the spot. They also had some slices of bruised fruit and tomatoes to top it off! My favorite thing was filling an order in Spanish. I also filled an order for a French speaking woman from Ivory Coast. Thank heavens the missionaries accompanied her and translated for us!
