"I wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had packing
food at your facility. As Darrel knows, our daughter was adopted
at the age of 7 from China and only weighed 37 pounds.
the video of Haiti during the training time and then volunteering to
package food, I could see a change in my daughter. She gained such
a sense of empowerment from being to help others with their hunger.
She truly remembers how it feels to be hungry and forgotten. It
robbed her of any hope for the future.Each day was such a struggle
of survival - who could look beyond that to see a tomorrow worth
having.The damage that hunger has done to her is slowly healing physically
and emotionally and thanks to programs like yours, that value the efforts
of children and their ability to truly make a difference, your work not only
heals the hungry it feeds but it empowers and values the children who volunteer."
