A Huge Thank you!

A huge thank you to our summer intern Nick!  He started with us again in May as soon as he returned home from college and has helped us in so many ways.  Nick helped and performed all around tasks: driving our box truck picking up provisions, loading and unloading, breaking down sorting through the provisions, breaking down endless boxes, shifting dry goods around inventory and in our cold storage equipment, mowing and weed whacking the grounds and interacting with so many people.  He is off to sports camps and then back to college in several weeks.  Thank you, Nick, for your help and a job well done!  Best wishes for a healthy, safe and successful junior year at college!
