THE STORY:

Jennifer Stretch wrote -

Finding out I am becoming a mom and that I'm going to be taking care of another human being really made me take a step back and think about some of the kids I met while briefly working in an elementary school.  The worst thing I had to endure was knowing that when I went home at night to have a nice dinner maybe throwing out some food that went bad, some of these kids went to bed hungry. I don't know what's worse, thinking of a child who doesn't get a simple thing like dinner or thinking of the parents how they must feel struggling and unable to provide for their child. I can't change every child's life but I can do something even if it's not much. I've decided to do a Virtual Food Drive benefiting Food Lifeline because Food Lifeline approaches hunger as a logistical problem that can be solved. Working with the food industry and its surpluses, they've come up with creative solutions to stopping hunger, including redirecting good food from manufacturers, farmers, grocery stores and restaurants that might otherwise go to waste. They provide 88,000 meals a day to local food assistance programs, and that, combined with their policy work, creates a sustainable approach to ending hunger in Western Washington. Please help me reach my goal, even if that means just one person doesn't go to bed hungry at night. ❤️
