Who will give hope to the hungry?

David had a long standing tradition of taking his family out for dinner on Valentine’s Day. It had started when he and his wife first started dating and expanded to include their growing family over the years. It was something he always looked forward to with balloons, a bouquet, laughter, love and a delicious meal.

But not this year.

Having lost his job several months ago, things had quickly become dire. He’d desperately searched for new employment as their meager savings depleted. This Valentine’s Day, instead of planning their special family meal, he knew his family would not have enough food to last the weekend. 

Share the Love

We invite you to join us for our annual Share the Love volunteer event to help provide food for families in need. Valentine’s Day weekend, we will bring together 150 volunteers to prepare hundreds of meals for those living in homeless or domestic abuse shelters.
