As an incoming 1L, Delanie Howell had the opportunity to spend her morning working at the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma as a part of TU Law Students Assist (T.U.L.S.A.), which was organized by the Public Interest Board at TU Law. During her time at the Food Bank, Howell worked with other classmates to repackage granola into 16 oz portions, which would be distributed to those in need.
“While at the Food Bank, we started with 25lb bags of granola and worked in teams to split the granola into smaller bags, which we weighed out to 1lb each,” she said. “We then sealed the bags with a thermo-sealer and packed them into boxes of 20 each to be sent to the warehouse for distribution.”
