We went to various service sites, but I think that everyone would agree that our favorite site was Our Daily Bread (aka ODB) where we served lunch 3 times. ODB serves lunch everyday of the week, 365 days of the year to anyone who needs a hot meal - they see up to 800 people during their 2 hour serving! We had different tasks ranging from bread girl (my specialty) to table cleaner to tea person and we all had meaningful experience serving those who need it most. We didn't take any pictures out of respect to the guests, but we had a really great experience!
We were also able to visit Washington DC on the Sunday before our week of service which was fun - I had never been! We visited all of the monuments and the Holocaust museum which was great. Here is our group in front of Vermont at the WWII monument on the National Mall.
