For me, the reason we are here is Love. We are here to love our fellow humans and do what we can to help them – without prejudice. I saw a real need around Thanksgiving, to help individuals and families that are struggling. Everyone should get to enjoy a bountiful and happy Thanksgiving meal. I am very pleased with how we have been able to grow the effort to touch the lives of thousands.

Vice President

BSF is near and dear to my heart because family time is of the utmost importance to me. Providing a Thanksgiving meal to a family who would otherwise not have one encourages that family time and conversations around the table. It is my favorite holiday with my family and want others to get that same joy. Helping BSF helps me do that.

Dee Strawser
Consultant

A number of years ago, I had an interest in bringing more structure and organization to the Byron Saunders Foundation. As time passed, I became fully immersed with the work of the Foundation as I fully believe in the scripture passage that the Foundation has adopted,  “For I was hungry and you gave Me food…whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did it for me.” – Matthew 25:35, 40

Ginny Williams

Ginny Williams
President of Knox County Chapter

In 2003, I was asked to find families that were having struggles in life and too uplift them by a laundry basket of food and a gift card for a Turkey…for Thanksgiving Day.  Twenty meals found a table for families in Knox County that year and the need hasn’t stopped.  God says, the poor will always be with us, I just want to help them and be a witness for Him.  The blessings sure out weigh the work.

Marketing Committee Chair

One simple act of kindness can lend itself in a chain reaction of undeniable life changing consequences.  Just “one small stone” tossed into the water that creates a ripple effect that goes on and on.  We need to create sustainable idea’s and support to fight hunger right here in Ohio.  No one should ever be hungry.  It all starts with just One Meal at a Time.  I want to help to make that difference.
