When Bob Bell learned how many children in his community didn’t have enough to eat, he got to work. He developed a system that now delivers food every Friday to more than 10,000 students in 72 schools, helping to cover the weekends when children can be the most vulnerable to food insecurity. This enormous undertaking is possible with the help of 350 volunteers who meet every Friday at dawn—outdoors, no matter the weather—to pack and deliver “PowerSacks” of food. The volunteers have never missed a Friday, even during the pandemic when schools were closed.
