The exact nature of the work we'll be doing will not be known until we arrive on Saturday morning.

In recent years we have worked outside, in the warm morning sun of Potrero Hill, sorting various fruits and vegetables.

In other years we have sorted and packed food boxes for distribution, or, we took a large inventory of one type of food and broke it down into smaller quantities.
