Helpers keep food bank alive

It looks like a grocery store exploded, and Rachel Meadows' charges are responsible for bringing order to the chaos. Cans of soup, flattened butter containers and over-the-counter medications are jumbled in the boxes. Bottles of juice and boxes of toothpaste are spread across the counters. Pallets of sorted toiletries, drinks and food products are slowly taking shape. It's a typical salvage procedure at Golden Harvest Food Bank, and the day's volunteers are busy sorting through donations under the watchful eye of Mrs. Meadows, the assistant reclamation supervisor.
