"Why I Give to The Food Project"



I’m Peter von Mertens.  I’m here to tell you why I support The Food Project.
Last spring, we had been working for a number of hours putting up structures for two high tunnel greenhouses. The work was slow and tiring and we were making a lot of mistakes.

Suddenly, one youth member of our crew stepped up, literally hopping up on a 12-foot ladder, and organized us to finish the work.

The Food Project sets the foundation for youth to recognize and rise up to opportunities for leadership. That's why I support The Food Project. 

Please give to The Food Project today. Your support helps put youth into action.

                                                                                       Thank you!
