My life has been marked by seasons of turbulence and calm which varied in length and intensity.

My freshman year in college was an exceptional time of growth. Barely 17, I thrilled over a wide circle of newfound friends and professors who took an interest in me. My sophomore year I struggled.

September is Hunger Action Month. Never before has this emphasis been as urgent or well-timed. It is purposed to raise awareness of the need to dedicate more resources and attention to hunger issues.

It has been an honor to serve publicly while others are called to serve in solitude. However, public service during a pandemic comes with pressure, and it is that very pressure that produces solidarity in purpose. The fear of falling victim to COVID-19 could not compare to the fear of failing to fulfill our mission to provide wholesome food to hungry people, while passionately pursuing a hunger-free community.

March 16th was a day that I don’t think I’ll ever forget. It was the day we had to scrap everything we knew and implement an emergency distribution strategy in the face of COVID-19. I suddenly found myself on the front lines of not only getting the food into our warehouse for distribution, but also working with our team to figure out how to move the most food possible into our community in a brand new way.
