Testimonial from a family of four:

My loving husband and I have two small children ages 5 and 8. For the past 2 summers on Tuesday nights, my family and I walk down to Happy Heart Farm and we are gifted with a bounty of beautiful, nutritious food. This Tuesday night walk has become a weekly reminder of the compassionate gift that we have received.

While pulling ourselves up out of poverty in the midst of working several jobs, attending college full time and homeschooling our children, Feeding the Families has been a life saver for our family. We have not had to make the difficult decision between paying our electric bill or putting food on the table. This peace of mind and has allowed us to focus on our children, their future, and finding financial stability.

Thank you for your very generous gift. We look forward to the day where we can repay this and help future families!
