Sarah’s Story

Hi, my name is Sarah. I am 13 years old. I started this food drive 8 years ago. One night during dinner, I told my mom that I was full, even though I still had lots of food left on my plate. My mom told me that there were people that lived five minutes away from us that didn’t have food for dinner and that we were so fortunate that we did.

Minutes later, we heard a story on the radio talking about the Thanksgiving food drive for the Daily Bread Food Bank. They were in need of a lot more food and were asking people to donate. After hearing that, I told my mom that I wanted to do something to help, so I decided to start my own food drive.

Over the past 8 years, we have raised over 250,000 pounds of food for the Daily Bread Food Bank, and we are just getting started!

  1. Thank you Sarah for doing this, I am a grandma to a 7 year old and we have just had this conversation also because her school is having a food drive for out local food bank and she wanted to know what it all meant. We are going on to the grocery store together on Friday and buying some food to put in our local food bank container. She is very excited to be able to do this. Thank you again for being an inspiration to others and I can’t wait to go home tonight and tell her your story.
