Message from Yvonne: I have gone to bed hungry and it’s been extremely hard for me right now. I am on parole and am working with Rev. Leon Kelly. I am doing all I can to succeed. I am interested in the issue of hunger. I know how it feels to have no place to turn – food stamps have really helped me out over the past few months. I also believe that food creates a bond. I see people walk by other people going through the trash to find food and I imagine how hungry that person must be. I would like to understand why hunger is such a big problem in our community and help find solutions. I volunteer for the Open Door Youth Gang Alternative.
