Hi, my name is Sarah. I am 13 years old. I started this food drive¬†eight years ago. One night during dinner, I told my mom that I was full, even though I still had lots of food left on my plate. My mom told me that there were people that lived five minutes away from us that didn’t have food for dinner and that we were so fortunate that we did.

Minutes later, we heard a story on the radio talking about the Thanksgiving food drive for the Daily Bread Food Bank. They were in need of a lot more food and were asking people to donate. After hearing that, I told my mom that I wanted to do something to help, so I decided to start my own food drive.

Over the past eight years, we have raised over 215,000 pounds of food for the Daily Bread Food Bank, and we are just getting started.
