K is for Kilograms

Actually, that would be 6000 of them as The Gathering took delivery of six pallets of the peanut pastes we've been busy giving out lately.

Once again it was a total blessing to be able to receive such a huge food delivery and it's an even greater blessing knowing that we have already allocated all 432 boxes and they will be gone by Friday afternoon. 

It's also been a huge blessing to have the services of Gus who for a very reasonable sum collected the pallets and transported them back to Firgrove for us. This really saved me and my back from a lot of stress. I also managed to rustle up a small team to help unload the truck in Firgrove so the job took about an hour, whereas it would have taken me all day at least.

It's quite stunning to think that we have just received 64800 meals and that they will be going out to some of the most deprived primary schools in the area as well as to a few smaller feeding programmes we support.

It's also quite exciting knowing that we were able to send another six pallets to another local NPO where they will be used and shared with other smaller projects.
