On Monday, June 19, ActioNeters from the Science & Research Business Unit (SRBU) helped at Washington, DC Food & Friends. Food & Friends is a community-based organization dedicated to improving the lives and health of people with limited ability to nourish themselves by preparing and delivering specialized meals and groceries, providing nutritional counseling, and cultivating a strong sense of community.  

ActioNeters and their families prepared and delivered specially tailored meals to satisfy the nutritional needs of community members suffering from HIV/AIDS, cancer, and other life-threatening diseases. We sorted, prepared, and packaged meals and goods in the facility kitchen. Each day, around 3,800 meals are served to customers. It was a great moment for the ActioNet Family to unite and undertake community service.
