Mark Smith of Midas of Richmond says, “I had the pleasure of delivering backpacks of food to Westview Elementary earlier today. Westview is a great place to take the backpacks – the faculty and staff always make time to chat, the kids have big smiles and bright eyes – and, man, do the faces light up when they see me carrying the backpacks in.”
This program feeds these hungry kids all weekend long. There are 16 single serve, self-serve nutritious meals and snacks in each of these bags that fight chronic hunger. Each back pack costs just $10 to deliver – so the 40 back packs represent a $400 investment in fighting hunger.
“This gets me thinking – what would you think about signing on to WWW.FEEDMORE.ORG right now, and making a $400 donation – you will feed this every child in this school who is in this program for an entire weekend! $400 is a lot of money – I get that, how about signing on, and donating what you can? Write ‘Let’s feed more kids’ in the comment box, so we can track this,” challenges Mark.
This is a real program that feeds over 2,000 kids in 50+ schools all over Central VA. Let’s accept Mark Smith’s challenge and take action to fight hunger for these kids.
