A dozen Teamster volunteers and their kids helped out at the Mother Earth Farm near Puyallup last Saturday. The Teamster crew spent the afternoon pulling weeds and installing a new irrigation system.
The event, sponsored by our Teamsters Women's Caucus, benefited the Emergency Food Network's farm-to-table program that provides fresh, organic food to individuals and families in need in Pierce County.
The folks that run the farm say that our group was one of the most productive they've seen in a while.
If you missed this past volunteer opportunity, our Women's Caucus will be hosting another event on June 6.
We'll be helping the EFN at its Lakewood warehouse, repacking frozen vegetables. If you'd like to attend, please contact Andrea Canini at 206-441-4860 or RSVP for the event here.
