Last week when our donor coordinator submitted her staff bio for the new website she included a quote from New York Congressman Jose Serrano that really encapsulates the reason that Community Plates was founded.
As we’ve begun this journey now in creating a simple-to-use logistical and technological food-rescue platform this statement really sums it up:
In a country with an overabundance of food, no one should go hungry because of a lack of funds or technical and professional knowledge. We have the food, and we have the networks; we now need to support the providers.
And by the way, it’s not only in Norwalk Connecticut that hunger is unnecessary and without reason; hunger is also senseless in cities, towns and villages all across the country. Join with us in bringing an end to a serious problem with no good reason to be.
