“People ask why I do this work. I tell them because it’s hard. It’s hard to know that families may have had an event in their lives causing them to lose resources or a source of income that may cause them to make hard decisions when it comes to food. It’s hard to know children in America, let alone the St. Louis region, go to bed hungry. It’s hard for me not to do something about it. I do the work because it is hard.”
