"If you have something to give, share it. Share your table."
Meredith is a long-time, dedicated Feed the Children supporter with a passion for giving back to others. His story is like a lot of our supporters, personal and inspiring.
Meredith’s father was a farmer and his mother was a housekeeper who instilled a mission of “sharing the good” in him at an early age. His parents led by example. He remembers that even if they didn’t have a lot to give, it didn’t matter. His father would never turn down someone who needed a helping hand. “No matter where you come from in life, someone has helped you. So, you have to remember that. No matter how poor you are, how rich you are, someone has always helped you.”
Meredith is a truck driver. The road has taken him all over America and he’s glimpsed real poverty and struggle firsthand. “It makes me very sad that someone, a family, can't provide for their children.”
Meredith’s compassion is what makes food and essentials possible for children. When we asked him why he chooses Feed the Children, he told us simply, “I believe in Feed the Children. I believe they do what they say they're going to do. And I believe that it helps someone that doesn't have anything or needs assistance.”
Meredith is not a millionaire. He is an everyday hero who chooses to be a part of the solution to end hunger. One person willing to take action, multiplied by many, is how hope happens.
