Panera Bread Ministry

I have had the opportunity to participate in a really amazing minsitry here at MTSO. As a member of the Community Enrichment and Empowerment Network (CEEN) I am partly in charge of the Panera Bread Ministry. Every evening when at closing time Panera donates their left over bread for that day to a different charitable organization. On Sunday evenings the community of MTSO gets to benefit from this program. Last night I took our new trusty truck to pick up the bread. We waited and waited and it was taking way longer than normal to pack up all the bread. Finally the manager told us we could start loading up. When all was said and done, the entire bed of the truck was full of bread. FULL! How rediculous is that?!
Normally we have enough bread to fill about 5 plastic containers. We had twice that amount this week, it consumed the coffee shop! I took pictures but have not uploaded them yet. I will include them in a further post.
