I first encountered Joshua's Heart foundation a few weeks after my daughter started middle school . We were going through the transition of a new school experience and almost immediately we were informed that the school was having an event to help families with food, uniforms, and school supplies! All I could say is wow what a wonderful new school ! My family was so surprised that at the event kids of all ages were packaging goodies , backpacks, and essentials for all of us families. Our school had the need and Joshua's Heart Foundation really provided more than food, they showed our students that they too could help make a difference ! My daughter joined Joshua's Heart Foundation ! I want to say Thank you to the dedicated volunteers and partners, who make Joshua's mission possible.

My organization asked my coworker and I if we knew any families that could benefit from the boxes of food and personal items and we did. We were able to pick up the food today and the volunteers were so pleasant and helpful. I had never heard of the organization before, but I have told everyone I know about it today. I was thrilled to see that it was started by a young child. What an awesome initiative and I will be sharing his story with my students. Thank you!!

Joshua's heart foundation is such a unique organization. The simple fact that it took the heart and determination of one little boy, with the support of his mother and others around him, to make such a great difference in the lives of many, is inspirational in itself. Joshua is such a great role model and ambassador for children everywhere, and surely opens the eyes of adults as well, while leading in the arena of stopping world hunger. Joshua was kind enough to come out to our school on Career Day and motivate our Elementary school students to make a difference in the communities in which they live, in whatever way they can. He also demonstrated to them that you are never to young to move mountains. His humanitarian values resonate throughout the cafeteria and his words resounded in the ears of our young students. He made such an impression on them. Not only did Joshua attend Career Day, he developed a bond with our school, as he has with many. He graciously introduced and implemented his food distribution program to our families and the community, feeding 100 families. What a magnificent gesture for a Title one school which 90% of the student population is on free an reduced lunch. We are actually preparing for our second implementation of the food distribution program at the end of April. Joshua, his mother and entire staff are kind, caring, and giving. We appreciate their hard work, dedication and commitment towards making this world a better place one meal at a time. Thank you!!!
