North Texas Food Bank
December 22, 2009

I've had experience with a few other places in doing teambuilding events for a charity. This was, by far, the most well-run and most enjoyable I've done with my team. The program not only focused on the North Texas Food Bank and how it works, but it also had an added benefit of helping my team learn to work together better and build communication. I got a great glimpse into just how competitive our group is, which was a surprise. Sweat flew. Cheers radiated throughout the warehouse floor. And nearly 20,000 pounds of food boxed along the way, we had a lot of laughs. This is a great event to help build camraderie as well as a gift of giving back to the community. I highly recommend this for your teambuilding event. You'll be surprised at the outcome and feedback.

Ways to make it better...

it were longer, believe it or not. As much as we were exhausted and having fun, I would have loved to go one more round to see if we could fill another group of pallets of food. Amazing!
