When I was a kid I remember some of the happiest days being around the first of the month when my family was able to buy a fridge full of food.
I remember running to the fridge during those times, opening it up and seeing my eyes widen from the possibilities. It was a small yet important aspect of my life.
When we had a fridge full of food, I'd love having friends over because I could offer them something. I felt proud during those moments. I was happy.
There were times when we didn't have a fridge full of food. And I remember that painful feeling of not having enough food or wishing I had more. I would go to the fridge and open the door. Close it. Open it. Close it. And open it again hoping there was something there I might have missed the few seconds before.
The goal of the Fridge Full of Food Project is simple. We will provide a fridge full of healthy and delicious food for a family in need. To give them a happy experience during this season allowing them the opportunity to the joys brought by having of a full fridge of food, to have guests over and feel proud. A chance to have a little extra than maybe they are used to, while also educating them on the healthy eating so they can provide a better quality of life for themselves and their family. This project is about giving and educating.
Our goal is to help raise funds so that we can provide as many families as possible in the Syracuse, NY area with a delicious and stacked to the brim fridge full of food.
Our first round of food distribution will be in December 2013.
