IRC food giveaway & children 2010

One of many food giveaways

Our day started at 6 am with a trip to the fresh market in Tegucigalpa. Poor people rarely receive fresh food. Our teams were given Limpera and divided into groups to shop for specific foods. (green vegetables,carrots, potatoes, onions, fruits, ect) Our Lowes Buckets were perfect to provide protection to the fresh food and gave the people a bucket for carrying and collecting water. 150 families received food they did not expect as a result of this effort. We ran out of food and dug through the bus and found a few bags of beans. As a 10 year old child was handed a bag of beans she lit up like a kid at Christmas over a simple bag of beans.
