The Feds Feed Families (FFF) drive is a great opportunity for all of us to give something to those who are less fortunate.  I accepted the challenge and went out Saturday morning and did some shopping and loaded up 285 pounds of food.   It was actually quite fun to think about what someone might like to have but even more importantly the smiles it will put on their faces when they have some food in their tummies.

I also reflected on how fortunate most of us were and how we go to the grocery store to buy food for our family not usually thinking of those that do not have the means to feed their children.  It brings us back to reality pretty quick – it certainly did for me.

The FFF drive is a very worthwhile program.   I challenge others to accept this opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives.
