My mom….my hero. As a child growing up raised by a single parent having enough food can be a challenge. A child has no control over having enough food or clothes and this can set you apart from your peers. Other kids can be cruel and anything that makes you different from others can be so embarrassing. It is hard when you are trying to blend in to accept help from others. All a child needs is someone who believes in them….to tell them they matter.
My new heroes as an adult (who recognizes having food is important for our children and integral for their future success) are Colby and Mike. They work passionately and tirelessly for the community of Flagstaff to provide food for our children. I wish we had people like these two when I was growing up. Please support them in their ventures to feed the children in Flagstaff in need
of food.

~Nelson Mandela, Former President of South Africa

Knowing from personal experience the worst thing as a kid is to go to bed hungry. My parents did the best they could to keep a roof over our heads. At times making that payment would mean that we might not have food on the table. I’m honored  to know Mike and Colby and I’m very grateful that there are people in this world like them, to create this opportunity for kids to not have to go to bed hungry.
