Church youth group gets involved

This evening, I headed into work, yes, even though it's Sunday!  The senior high youth fellowship from First Church in Simsbury was coming to Foodshare for a Hunger 101 presentation and a tour of our building.  Their were 32 people here and it was great to both share with them about Foodshare's work and hear about the exciting projects these young people are undertaking.  They are regular tutors for elementary school aged children in Hartford, which is way more important that volunteering at Foodshare.  By tutoring and mentoring a child, they might well help break the cycle and change that child's life forever!

Their trip to Foodshare was in preparation for their participation in the Walk Against Hunger, coming up in just two weeks!  I look forward to seeing this enthusiastic group of young people there!
