RS&H associates recently volunteered their time to sort food at the distribution center for Feeding Northeast Florida, a Jacksonville food bank. Food sorters play a critical role in ensuring quality and safety of food items prior to leaving the facility. Donations can include anything from pantry items to fresh produce.
Collectively, the associates sorted through 6,825 pounds of donations. This many pounds of food is expected to create 5,288 meals for children, families, seniors, and veterans in need. After the shift was over, the team happily signed an RS&H 75th anniversary t-shirt and hung it on renowned the “wall of shirts.”
