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.
Gloria Merrell | Concerned Student
Summary: 12 year old Gloria Merrell filmed a PSA for K-12 Food Rescue. Food Rescue never asked for this video, and we had never met her before.She filmed it because she was impacted by seeing all the recovered wasted from schools in her area feeding people instead of going into the trash. She wanted to challenge schools nationwide to join K-12 Food Rescue. Gloria is now the Indiana State Director of Student Leadership.
Importance: Gloria's film demonstrates the courage to believe that her 12-year-old voice could make a difference in some way.
