"Some months we struggle and other months are not as bad. But you know it depends on how things roll that month, for what we need to put out as far as income, and sometimes we get short," says Gloria Harris. Helping to ease the struggle, Feed the Children delivers shipments of food around the world to millions of families. Today, their destination was Little Rock, Arkansas. "Come on let's keep in rolling, keep it rolling,” says a volunteer. A line of more than 400 cars flooded the parking lot of Saint Mark Baptist Church. Each family received a 25 pound box of food, and personal care items. It may not sound like a lot, but for many families struggling at times to make ends meat, every little bit helps. "It's a blessing being able, that I'm raising four children whose parents are deceased, and so it's a blessing to be able to have a church every time something that's needed to be a part of it, knowing that they have giving hearts." Feed the Children partnered up with Omega Psi Phi Fraternity and Florida Senator, Tony Hill. "We're just here to show love to this community. Humanitarian and we just feel like it's the right thing to do from our fraternity," says Tony Hill. Working to eliminate hunger, by keeping the light alive, one family at a time. "I'd like to say thank you, God bless, and continue up the good work, says Harris. During Feed the Children's last fiscal year, they distributed 183 million pounds of food and other essentials around the world.
