Description : Colorado State Department of Public Welfare Surplus Commodities Division - State Grocery Warehouse - packaging of rice, cereals, corn meal and similar items are handled in this department. The bulk goods flow to the hoppers by gravity and are packed in smaller units for distribution by door-to-door delivery system to relief clients. Every package is checked as to accuracy of weight and quality of goods. From the hopper table it passes to the packers, who pack into containers, then handled by a crew for the shipping department.
