Community Engagement at The Table: Anna Clemens, Section 2

Each Tuesday in Downtown Fredericksburg, for fifty weeks out of the year, the food pantry The Table provides staples and fresh produce to the community.  Those who attend do not have to prove need, as there are no poverty requirements or threshold—the pantry is open to all.  I volunteer here each week from 5PM to 7PM and attended on Tuesday, 1 December 2015.  On this day I helped distribute produce, as I usually do, but also interviewed Chris Cook, the lead grant writer of the operation, for this project; her answers have provided me all the information gathered on The Table presented in class and recounted in this paper.
