I volunteer with this program and my wife is a Board Member. I love her stories that she hears about from other volunteers of the children's smile on their faces and the children's excitement when they get to pick up their food on Fridays. I am in awe at the community support and the support of volunteers that they have on a regular basis at events to benefit Feed the Need of Putnam County, Inc.

As the Executive Director of a nonprofit that provides food to Feed the Need, I have visited and evaluated how Feed the Need operates. They have many hard-working volunteers devoting lots of time, energy, and effort (not to mention money) each week to provide food to children who would otherwise go hungry. During the school year, many children receive breakfast and lunch at school, but these same children often suffer from hunger when school is not in session. So Feed the Need provides food to these children on weekends and over the summer break. Studies show that children who suffer from chronic undernutrition perform less well in school, are absent more often, have more physical and mental health issues, and have more behavioral issues. Keeping kids fed is essential and Feed the Need is doing just that and doing it well and cost-efficiently.

Our community has a very large number of children who do not have the security of knowing they will have enough food to feed and nourish them when they go home from school. An amazing group of people in our community came together to form Feed the Need of Putnam County which is going a long way to meeting this need in children's homes. There are many ways to volunteer and to contribute and ever contribution is important in these children's lives. Children are furnished with food when they go home on the weekends and during the summer which is shared with siblings and other family members. I have contributed time and dollars to this cause because a child shouldn't have to worry about being hungry anywhere in the world.
