Yesterday, staff members from Pearl volunteered their time and talents in creating a realistic restaurant setting for the culinary students at Second Helpings in Indianapolis, Indiana. Staff served as wait staff, served food to the patrons, prepped the dining room, and cleaned up after guests. This is an activity required of their culinary students for graduation. See more information here about this program that has changed so many students’ lives.

No only did it allow our employees to exercise some different skills, it provided a great overview of the amazing work the not-for-profit Second Helpings does in the greater Indianapolis area by rescuing food and creating 400 meals a day for our community. All staff and volunteers we met during the event were dedicated, friendly, and appreciative of our efforts.

Hats off to Second Helpings and thank you for the opportunity to serve our community.
