Several years ago when I was dropping my kids off to their sports practice at a local recreation center a sign caught my eye. It read ' you live here (spot on the map) what difference did you make'. That message echoed in my mind for several years till it took shape in 2012 when the idea to serve fresh home cooked meals to the needy was born. Since then slowly and steadily we have grown from serving one shelter to seven at present. Spreading across Montgomery County, PG County, DC and VA we have served close to 40,000 meals and donated 1700lbs of non- perishable food. In addition we also distribute clothes, comforters and essentials to these shelters.
Aftermath of Florence that wrecked havoc in North Carolina, our team made their maiden efforts to extend help outside our state. With overwhelming support from our volunteers we donated 1600lbs of food to the hard hit areas and volunteered at the warehouse making hygiene and first aid kits.
This is just the beginning. Our journey is long ahead striving to alleviate hunger and making a positive difference in the lives of people around us. All the while believing that a "Handful of grains is a bowlful of hope".
