What Is A Typical Day Like For You At WHEAT? 
 
I’m here at 9am until dinner is over. When I get here in the morning, I get everything set up for the volunteers. I get out what we need for the day, assign jobs, see what I have to cook. We have a lot of meals that need to go out, so I organize what needs to be delivered. I check my book for the volunteers we have that are willing to deliver meals. I call people if we don’t have enough. When that is over, I clean up and prep for dinner and get the menu ready for the following days.
