Seventeen years ago Lisa Eleze Thomas-McMillan was forced to consider these questions when she witnessed a woman struggling to pay for a small basket of groceries. Lisa was humbled to learn just how rampant a problem hunger is, and she made a vow that “nobody should ever have to worry about having enough to eat.” Drawing strength from her family, friends, and community, she opened a food bank and started delivering meals to the elderly.
