What does it mean to you to be a part of #hashtag lunchbag Phoenix?

“When Q and Nick first said they were gonna do it, I was in and donated so we could do it that first run. I knew we were onto something and felt like we had to do so much more. During distribution one of the first couple of months, I actually gave a lunch to my uncle, who was homeless at the time. I knew then and there that I would be a part of what we were doing until we stopped doing it. That was in 2013. I keep volunteering because of the opportunity it gives me to have an impact on the community as well as being able to set an example for the teens I work with. I love what we do, why we do it and the people that have become part of my family. It’s crazy to think I’ve had a hand and played a part in the work we’ve been able to do over the last 4 years.”

In The Spotlight

The Change Society would like to welcome Midwest Food Bank located in Gilbert Arizona. MFB started in 2003 when the Kieser family began providing food out of a barn on their family farm. MFB serves over 1,400 non-profit organizations while also maintaining a ready posture to come to the aid of those affected by regional or national disasters. They distribute over $9.5 million in food each month. Midwest Food Bank functions today as it did at its founding: a faith-based community organization consisting of hundreds of volunteers, generous donors, and corporate partners, all operating to serve those in need. We are glad to be apart of the team!
