Everlyn Bryant, a past Grow Communities winner, directed her Grow Communities donation to feed hundreds of folks with weekly food boxes from Share a Prayer. Bryant chose Share a Prayer because of their special attention to feeding the youth and the elderly, especially in the summer. There is a common misconception about seasonal hunger. People think that since the summer months are warmer, people can move around and find more to eat.

The truth is, shelters are given more donations around the winter months. Meaning? People are left hungry when we least expect it. Thanks to the watchful eye and kind hearts of farmers, like Evelyn, we can feed more mouths when it’s needed the most.
