    having a "meltdown" its front-page news and all over the magazine stands. We put so much emphasis on the bad things that happen we tend to forget that there are so many good things happening in this world we live in. In this module, we have been talking about a few things, that can shed a little light into what can be seen as a hopeless world. I think all three of the food outreach programs we have looked at over the past few weeks are very good programs.

    assist is to help someone with money, resources, or information. The food pantry has allowed me to assist impecunious people who may not be as blessed as me.

I started volunteering at the North Dearborn Food Pantry during my freshman year of high school as a way to spend time with my grandpa, but it evolved over time. When I first began, I only worked two times a week for 8 hours total and now I work three times a week for a total of 14 hours. My work must have been proved in order to move up in position at the pantry. In the first year, I was able to move from assisting in putting out…

I had picked to go to the Food Pantry the Tuesday before, although I did not foresee any of the events that would happen there at that time.
