Help local Laura Prell Feed 108 Families

Laura Prell has started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to help feed 108 families a real meal. Laura is working with the St. Peter's Church Food Bank and estimates it costs $20 to provide a family a real meal and is thus hoping to raise $2160. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated. From the campaign page:

The idea of feeding 108 families a real meal with real food started a long time ago, but last year, I was reminded of this idea, when I was putting my food away after coming home from food shopping. Not everything would fit in my fridge and I was annoyed. Then I felt like someone smacked me in the face... I have too much food and it won't fit in my fridge... I am so blessed that I have never known hunger a day in my life. I knew I wanted to do something that showed how grateful I am for that. My husband and I, have always donated to food banks at the holidays, but we wanted to do more, make it more of a monthly reminder of how good we have it. We started buying $25.00 worth of extra groceries at our local wholesale club. Each time we went, it felt really good to see the food stack up in our entry way, but then I finally got around to dropping it off at our local food pantry in town. They were so grateful they invited me in for a tour of the pantry. I asked if there were things they needed? The director said, that coffee and tea are things people really love, but don't get a lot of...that stopped me in my tracks, as a new mom I can't imagine not being about to have a cup of coffee or tea in the morning. They also need simple things like flour and baking power. They also never get chicken breast or fresh veggies and fruits.
