HOPE for Food
New for 2018, HOPE for Food is a year-round effort to support non-profit efforts to provide families with an everyday essential: food on their table. Although we don’t just want food on the table, we want healthy, fresh and local food on families’ tables who need it most. To kick off this effort, we stopped by Hill Country Community ministries in January 2018 and dropped off our first check for the efforts, $5,000 To help them expand their Fresh Food For All program.
Here is a simple concept, let’s take out the processing, and just get to simple ingredients.
When asked about his vision for this new project at Brungot Farms, owner Aaron Brungot said:
”I believe in being real and transparent, so here is the real truth. When I took two years off after working 16 years in corporate America in 2014 and 2015, it was very eye-opening, and I realized there is so much more to live for. I don’t want to go to work every day, I want my days filled with working because I want to work. I have had this dream for a long time with Christmas trees, and the farm lifestyle. I grew up with these things in northern New Hampshire, and want to return to them and bring my family up in them in the future. We didn’t grow up with words like organic or sustainable, never mind things like paleo or vegan, we grew up with a simple word, FARM.
People ask me why I give so much away, time, products and financial resources that honestly, I am more grateful than I can ever explain with words. I have never hidden the fact that I grew up in a broken home. Did it suck? Oh yes. Here’s the thing, I can make it an excuse or I can make it a driving force behind my passion for change. I choose the ladder.”
This year, to match our $5,000 donation, we need to sell 1,000 of our Artisanal Farm Goods Box - Monthly Subscriptions! For a brand new program, that is a lofty goal!
Will you help us put 50,000 pounds of food for families in Central Texas for families? Yes, that’s right, Raising the $5,000 provides 50,000 pounds of food to families in need!
