In my travels to 50 different countries, I have never seen any program as efficient, effective, and impactful as Lunches for Learning on the lives of young children living in poverty. Lunches for Learning not only enables young children to complete their education, but encourages them to do so. Completing their education will positively affect them and future generations to come.

As a founding member of Lunches for Learning, I have been blessed many times over since I began working with the organization. We started several years ago with our first lunches at the Andrea Gonzalez Elementary School feeding just over 80 kids and today, we feed in excess of 1,400 kids. Support for L4L comes from individual donors and school sponsors to companies and corporations in addition to community and faith-based organizations. After we fed our first lunches, I never really imagined or expected to expand beyond our first school, but with faithful financial supporters combined with the disciplined, committed leadership and oversight by the L4L Board and (and let's not forget some faith) L4L is prepared to feed many more hungry children in rural Honduras to help break the cycle of poverty. After looking into the eyes of child after child during my travels in Honduras, I am forever changed. Simply put, this is my opportunity to give back a portion of which I have been so wonderfully blessed. I know this organization from the inside out and I can think of no better place to lend my time, talents and financial resources.

You won't find a more efficient organization that feeds children. 96% of all donations go directly toward feeding the children of Valle Province in Honduras. This program is transforming communities and will in the end transform the Valle Province. I have been to see the program and the parents and children are so thankful for L4L's support. L4L is making a huge difference in one of the poorest places in the world.
