Central Texas Food Bank (Warehouse)

Gave 5.00 hours on 04/06/2019 with Phi Alpha Delta Pre Law- St. Edward's, Class of 2019, Community Engagement Commencement Cord
S.E.R.V.E. 1 Day

It was my second time at the food bank, and I was able to try a new role. I was working with recycling cardboard instead of putting food on a conveyor belt. I liked this a lot more because I was contributing to the sustainability practices and it made me want to recycle more at home.

I loved this experience because I learned how to step back and start to delegate. I gave my junior staff members in my group the ability to do what they wanted. I didn't have this kind of experience when I was a junior counselor and I really wanted to make sure that my junior counselors had the ability to have some kind of leeway. It worked really well and I just had the most incredible group ever.

Being able to staff Celebración was amazing. It was really interesting to be in the staff member role when my peers were still participants. It was also interesting to see my brother in his element because I hadn't seen that since I was fifteen and it was my program. I felt like I was at home even if it was just for a few hours. I was there from Friday morning until the early hours of Sunday (I think I left at around 1am maybe 2am), and it was an incredible experience.

I had the chance to work with the LDZ for the first time this year and I was able to see the behind the scenes of my one of my favorite programs. I was constantly stressed, but the end result was amazing. I was really thankful that I got to be part of the growing moments for these students. I was a staff member who was there for them when they cried and when they were happy. I learned the importance of delegating how annoying it is when people do not want to help, but I also learned the importance of taking responsibility when things went wrong.

This was the first time I was able to work as head coach and that was the first time that I was actively making decisions. I had to think about what kind of team culture I wanted and what kind of participants I wanted in my group. I also had to learn how to be a head coach and what my coaching style needed to be now that I was no longer a JFL. It was a hard transition because I no longer had the ability to take part in the judging for the competition, but I loved the new role I was able to transition into.

Big Event 2017

It was really inspiring to see just how much food had been donated, but it was also really heart breaking to know that a lot of food couldn't be sent because it was damaged or it was beyond expired. It really hurt to see that there are people who try and donate expired food just because they want to clean out their pantry.
