Give Where You Live!
Join Ftof’s latest hunger relief efforts – the DoorKnob Dinners and Let’s Do Dinner! food drive projects. Give where you live!! Start a monthly community service project on your street, in your neighborhood, at work or at your place of worship.
In just four months, DoorKnob Dinner and Let’s Do Dinner! volunteers in Hastings on Hudson, NY, Worcester, MA, Bowling Green, KY and Englewood Cliffs, NJ have donated groceries for over 2,000 individual dinners to local food pantries!
Once a month DoorKnob Dinner volunteers leave a bag of specific groceries to make one dinner meal for a family of five hanging on their doorknob. A neighborhood coordinator picks the bags up and brings them to the pantry. Let’s Do Dinner! engages workplaces, places of worship and social clubs in the same effort. We supply a recipe to make it personal. Local giving is the way to go!
F-to-F’s founder (Pam Koner) has joined the blogosphere! Aptly named “Pam-demonium,” the blog chronicles Pam’s thoughts and hectic life running an out-of-the-box hunger and poverty relief organization. Pam-demonium touches on everything from being a mindful human being when you’re doing your shopping… to recycling unwanted clothes to help a good cause (Family-to-Family!)… to why it’s important to teach your kids early and often about poverty…. to F-to-F’s office mascot Wally, a pug who wears a diaper!
Growing by Leaps and Bounds
In the last few months, thanks to funding from Welch’s, we’ve expanded our hunger relief sponsorship program into 5 new communities. We’re now in Brookside, Alabama… Southaven, Mississippi… Whitney, Nevada… Baltimore, Maryland and Worcester, Massachusetts. That puts us in 17 states. 33 to go!
