My name is Mace and I am a 12 year old Hunger Fighter. Five years ago hunger became real to me on a visit to the Capital Area Food Bank (now known as the Central Texas Food Bank) after we collected food at our family Thanksgiving dinner. It was right then that I decided I didn’t want anyone to be hungry anymore, and I set a goal to feed 1,000 people by the end of the year. Thanks to the help of family, friends and even strangers, we were able to feed more than 5,000 people. That’s right! We fed more than 5 times the amount of people we set out to. Our goal for 2015 was to feed 10,000 people and we actually collected enough for more than 30,000 meals. In 2016, we collected enough to provide almost 200,000 meals. In 2017 we collected enough to provide 275,000 meals. In 2018 we provided a record-breaking 320,000 meals. That is a lot of food!That is a lot of food!
But here’s the problem. There are still hungry people out there and I am not stopping until there are no more hungry people. For 2019 I have set a goal to feed 315,000 people, but I can’t do it alone. I hope you will help me by making a donation here. Or if you want to collect food, I am happy to come pick it up. Just email me at email@example.com and we will take it to the food bank for you.
With your help, this year we will reach the ONE MILLION total meals provide mark. Together, we can end hunger!
