we went to the sf food bank to volunteer during the last day of orientation. it was like a costco!
the people wearing red are accenture people
wine?! we later found out that they were just suprlus boxes that vineyards donate to the food bank so they can use to pack other food
they were packing big 300 lb bags of cereal into 1/2 lb bags that are more useful when it comes to distributing. we were supposed to pack cereal, but the cereal room was already full.
so we did the sorting instead. so all those barrels that you donate food in come to the food bank, and volunteers sort through them, and categorize them.
thats where we were!
my picture is blurry but this is the people in my orientation group plus a few others. we sorted through 10,000 lbs of food that day!
this was taken on my first day on site. driving home from palo alto.

we went to monterey for some chowder
so pretty out there
johnny wasn't afraid of the rocks
we saw a bird eating a bird
this seagull was staring at us the whole time we were chowing down our chowder
johnny ate a whole crab all by himself!
not only that, he ate the crab AND the chowder in a bread bowl!
AND drank the crab juice!
AND ate a candy apple!
weird looking bug landed on my windshield
then on the way back we passed by all these oil things
