My friend, Kim, is the executive director of the Maui Food Bank and has been for many years. She teaches me how to think critically to know when it’s time to make a change. One of the most important decisions she makes is when to help out your local food bank. It’s important that you know you’re making a difference.
One of the most important things that I’ve learned from Kim is to do your part to help those less fortunate. A food bank is not a charity organization, and its mission is to provide food to those in need. So when you run across a food pantry or food bank, you should be thinking of them in the same way that you think of a community center or school. You should think of them as a place that can benefit from your efforts.
I think you can definitely get a lot of value out of the experience of using a local food bank. It’s an important place to help folks get food. But if you’re going to use that as a way to help yourself, you need to make sure you’re doing it with the right motivations.
The best thing to do is to use it as a way to help people. You might think it’s a good idea to go to a food bank in order to help out your neighbors, but they might not think it’s a good idea. Instead of being the altruistic person who wants to help out your neighbors, you might be the person who is trying to take advantage of the situation.
It doesn’t matter how much food you’re going to give out. Giving food is like giving money. The only thing you can say about the food you’re giving out is that it’s money.
So, why should you give food out if youre not sure whether or not you should? It comes down to this: If youre trying to help a friend out, you shouldnt be acting like a douchelord. Sure, you might want to help out people you don’t know personally, but, if youre doing so to be a friend, you shouldnt try to take advantage of the situation.
A few weeks ago we did an article that mentioned how the Maui Food Bank is a great way to help out, but it got a bit long. This article by maui food banks director Lisa Vassallo takes things to the extreme by saying that it is not only a great way to help that you couldnt help yourself without. She tells us that we have to stop thinking in terms of help vs. assistance. I say, I agree with that.
Lisa Vassallo explains that we are actually having a bit of an issue with the term “assistance”, because we are giving people the wrong idea. By assisting, we are actually giving them a “service”. A service is something you perform for someone and you receive a reward in return. By assisting, we are actually taking the time to perform a service for someone.
That is an interesting concept. I know you have to start seeing that assistance as a positive thing. I also know that I am personally guilty of this myself. I am often the one who has to help someone out, whether it is cleaning up their mess or helping them with something. I think of myself as a person who is providing a service. I see myself as a person who is offering a service to a person.
If I am offering a service, why am I not getting what I say I am? For example, I would like to say that I am able to clean up a mess in a short amount of time. But when I actually finish the job, I do not feel that I have accomplished anything. I do feel that I am doing a service.
