I worked twice at Keystone this week for the first time. Also, I continued with some food research at the grocery store, meaning I went to the store and checked out the ingredients/nutrition facts on several popular items at the food shelf. Other than that, I reflected on my project thorough writing my essay for the final.
Working at Keystone on a different day was an interesting experience. Wednesday was more relaxed than Fridays typically are. Also, I learned more about the problems facing a food shelf, since on Wednesday, there was hardly any food left in the back room. By Friday, the shelf had renewed resources, but I learned that its supply could be erratic. This makes incorporating nutrition even more difficult when resources are limited.
I began formulating the next steps of my project this week, so I think I am ready to accomplish the objectives of the project in the upcoming weeks. What I need to do is to communicate more with the leaders at the food shelf so that they are clear about what I am doing. At the moment, my next steps seem only theoretical, but once I communicate with people at the shelf, I will be able to implement them and thus accomplish the objectives.
