BEDS Emergency Services Coordinator Sue Dever talks about a day on the job in our Food Rescue program. It takes a dedicated team of donors, staff and volunteers to prepare meals for delivery to our clients.

We pay tribute to former Vice President Walter Mondale, who recently passed away at age 93. Among other things, Mondale as a Senator was instrumental in the passage of The Fair Housing Act of 1968 to combat racial discrimination in housing. Mondale championed civil rights and fairness throughout his life. Learn more about his efforts to help pass the Fair Housing Act in this short video created by the National Fair Housing Alliance: http://fhact50.org/seven-days/
