Earlier this year we had the joy of spending the day gleaning avocados for the Food Bank. While most of our team was available to help that day, my nine year old son, Jadon, also asked to come along. The moment ended up being powerful watching not only our team link arms to help those in need, but watching the generational impact of my young son choosing to spend his afternoon to put food on the table for those less fortunate. The day ended up being a fun, friendly competition as my son challenged our team members to glean more quickly—it became a time full of laughter and memories. At the end of the day we were physically tired and dirty but our hearts were full and we felt more connected with each other and with our community.
