The overview of the typical activities I participated in at the Bakersfield Homeless Center consisted of providing 3 nutritional meals a day for the people and families at the center.

Furthermore, I participated in activities that were beneficial to my educational and career goals, which involved interacting with the community. For example, I managed to create bonds with the people at the center and gained their trust during the process.
There are so many ways that poverty/world hunger can be controlled. We can start by working together to help when there’s a disaster caused by Mother Nature, when there’s crop issues and your local market closing due to other issues. If that’s not good enough we can also help by raising money, start food drives and educate countries how to grow food productively.

I go to the ECHO foods when I have a free time to hand food to the needy people in my community. This helped me understand the hidden aspects of my community. In a normal daylight, it’s hard to meet a desperate person who doesn’t have food to eat unless he/she is homeless, but volunteering ECHO gave me the opportunity to serve people the needy people. One the other hand, I donated my blood to Red Cross to help people desperate in blood transfusion. Blood is the most valuable gift that I have ever gave away.

WFP are one of the major contributors to relief food in the country as it is part of their mandate. WFP is currently providing school meals to 770,000 school children in the northern arid districts of the country. In more semi-arid regions of the country, Kenya’s Ministry of Education is feeding another 750,000 children, which is being carried out through the “Home Grown Feeding Programme”.

Then, I stared at serving spoon I held in my hands as I prepped myself to serve the crowd of homeless people. Although, I was apprehensive at first, my experience working at the soup kitchen introduced me to my love for community service. In 2012, I was a member of Students Helping and Reaching Everybody (S.H.A.R.E), a volunteering club, at Seoul American High School. S.H.A.R.E provided students the opportunity to volunteer both inside the military base and outside in the city Seoul, South Korea. Initially I joined the club as an extra-curricular activity and community service for future college applications.

Volunteers are needed in the dinner services by chopping up or cooking all the amounts of foods they need. Not only preparing it, but distributing it as well.
