“What I liked was the opportunity to make positive macro level impacts in the fight against food insecurity and child hunger. I was able to participate in an evaluation program to help promote and improve summer meal sites, that will hopefully become a national program someday. I liked that I could help build a better foundation in this fight, and be an advocate.”
