For the second year in a row an amazing group of high school students are taking the lead on fighting world hunger through FOOD FIGHT. Here is what I love – FOOD FIGHT is a not-for-profit founded solely by students and led solely by students. Last year FOOD FIGHT raised $16,000 and packed almost 100,000 meals that were sent to Cambodia and Zambia. This year they are hoping to double what they raise so they can pack twice as many meals and feed twice as many people. You gotta love it!
There was a great piece in a local newspaper titled, Called To Serve that tells the story of these amazing students. On Thursday night they will be having a fund-raiser at the upscale La Sorella Di Francesca, my favorite restaurant in Naperville. If you are interested in participating in this fund-raiser or making a donation to FOOD FIGHT check out their website.
