KG: Silas, I think you are one of our youngest volunteers! What got you interested in volunteering at Missoula Food Bank?
SS: My grandma and I, she said, “I want to do something after school with you. Do you want to do Humane Society or Food Bank?” And I said Food Bank. I just like helping people; I think it’s really great to do that. I’ve never done this before but I like it a lot. So we signed up and every Monday we come in and do produce.
KG: What is your favorite fruit or vegetable to stock in the produce section? Why do you like it so much?
SS: I really like lettuce. Because what I usually do, I just stack it up neatly. It’s just my favorite. I just love to do it.
KG: Who is your favorite person to see when you come here?
SS: Darrell, probably. He’s super fun and outgoing.
KG: What is the most fun thing about being at Missoula Food Bank?
SS: I like the snack table.
KG: What is your favorite snack on the snack table?
SS: Sometimes they have cinnamon rolls.
KG: Do you spend time with your grandma doing other fun things?
SS: Yeah, I have a playdate with my friend every Monday and Wednesday, and that’s really fun, and after this we usually go to Bernice’s.
KG: If you could tell the kids in your class anything about the Food Bank, what would it be?
SS: It’s really, really fun. You should try it. I think you would like it, if you like helping people.
KG: What’s your favorite holiday? Why?
SS: I like Halloween and Christmas. But if I could choose one, I’d choose Christmas.
KG: What’s your favorite Halloween costume that you’ve ever been or ever seen?
SS: This year I was guy with a staff and a cloak and a top hat and a face that was always smiling and it had makeup on it, and it was really creepy. It was like sinister, pretty much.
KG: Have you watched the Star Wars movie?
SS: Yeah. It was great! It was amazing!
KG: What was the coolest moment?
SS: I liked it when the storm trooper (but he’s good now) Finn, he went up to a storm trooper and the storm trooper, he took this thing out of his pocket and he flicked it and it was like this huge giant gun with a sword on one end, it was super cool!
KG: Who is your favorite superhero?
SS: He’s not really from the Avengers, but he’s called Deadpool. He’s like a way cooler version of Spiderman.
KG: If you could choose any superpower what would it be?
KG: What would you shape into?
SS: Anything. Everything I wanted to. If I could be specific, maybe a bird. Like a falcon or something.
KG: If you won the lottery, what would you do with all the money?
SS: Hide it around town and make a scavenger hunt. And then keep some for myself and spend it on video games.
KG: What makes you laugh?
SS: Random stuff, like everything that’s super random.
KG: What do you want to be when you grow up?
SS: A rockstar, an artist, and a video game designer.
