Where they are multiplying good: West Lafayette, Indiana
How they are multiplying good: They are One in a Million. As soon as the announcement was made for the schools to go remote learning, we knew we had to do something, that these kids who rely on breakfast and lunch five days a week weren’t suddenly going to have meals at home. We knew that the panic buyers would not include their parents, able to stock up for multiple weeks, and wouldn’t have the storage even if they had the funds. Honestly, we thought we would be doing this for one, maybe two weeks. We assumed we were just filling in the gap until the school system could get a plan together. We were wrong! We just completed our sixth delivery, have provided 2700 meals, and see no immediate end in sight. Donations came from everywhere, even from folks we didn’t know. We are being challenged to share what we have to feed those without any. We don’t know from week to week what food we are serving; it all depends on what is given. Truly, we are operating a Loaves and Fishes kitchen. We have yet to run out of food.
