That is the number of boxes we packed at the Greater Chicago Food Depository last weekend.

Our contribution: carefully counting 4 sets of plastic flatware and placing them in each of the 1,249 boxes. We were really glad the flatware didn’t consist of sporks. There were moments where it felt like “I love Lucy” as the conveyor belt slid by quite quickly and a few close calls with missing bags of rice, but all in all, a productive, fun morning doing something to help others.
