Seattle Wednesday

What another great day. Today we worked with Operation Sack Lunch, an organization feeding Seattle's hungry for over 25 years. Their mission is "to provide dignity, care and compassion through action with the example the each person can make a difference. To education and advocate acceptance and understanding of each other's differences. To ultimately bring about the realization that we are all a vital part of this world and with extended effort put an end to homelessness, hunger and hatred." They carry out their mission by providing healthy, organic meals to the hungry of Seattle. Today we helped to prepare and serve meals to the people at the Compass Center and then took the meals on the road to site where anyone can come and get a good meal. We saw probably over 150 people come to get a meal. It was a wonderful and fulfilling day.

After we finished up with our service site we took advantage of being in downtown and went to the Seattle Center, Pike Place Market and everywhere in between. We closed day with a nice meal and reflection, and another beautiful sunset.
