Saving up for the holidays

Bart Brown is the President/CEO of Ozarks Food Harvest, the Feeding America member food bank in Springfield, Missouri.  Here he talks about the great work of the food bank.  I was particularly touched by a story he told of a child who depended on the school backpack program, the son of a substance abusing mother, who had to hide his food, saving cans over months so he’d have enough to hold him over during school holidays. It’s not the kind of saving most of us have to worry about doing.
