Food Rescue is celebrating it's 10th year in 2017. It's beginning can be traced back to John Williamson, the current Executive Director. His story was recently hilighted here and talks of a man at his low point, a man who didn't know where his local pantry was.
Thanks to his efforst 10 years ago, we can know share many other stories. Here are 10 we picked out from the hundreds.
Dr. Jennifer Price | Superintendent
Carina Schusterman | Mom
Summary: Carina Schusterman has worked tirelessly to inform administrators, town officials and other parents about the opportunity to donate the uneaten food to local families. Her efforts paid off as Dr. Price stars in a public service announcement for North Andover School District in MA.
Importance: We know how it can be frustrating to promote food rescue programs up through the schools just to have a single administrator squash the idea. Maybe it was because they are not comfortable or lack understanding of the the laws that changed or maybe they are unaware of the support they have from the EPA and USDA. Powerful stuff when the Superintendent "Gets It" and promotes the idea to the entire district!
