We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization with a mission to end local hunger through donation of healthy, tasty, and easy to cook BagOfLife® meals to those facing hunger, to build a deep commitment to green living, and to develop knowledge and empathy for the underserved in our communities. With 1 in 7 (over 46 million) fellow Americans facing malnutrition resulting in an avalanche of obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and heart disease, our mission is to provide a variety of nourishing and easy to cook meals individuals and families can enjoy.
Though I started my working life as a civil engineer, and then morphed into a management consultant, www.center4pm.com, my hobby and ‘off screen’ focus has been on developing recipes for healthy and tasty dishes; considered to be a dichotomy by many. At the start of 2007, I began writing a food column for three regional newspapers with much positive response from readers. Then starting in 2009 with the economy taking a deep hit, the nation faced a new dilemma — widespread problem of hunger and poor nutrition in the under-served community and on the other end of the scale, nation’s obesity rates were in a steep upturn. This led me to wondering how I could use my professional experience and interest in cooking to advance the cause of fighting hunger. One of the triggers for the change was an experience while I was on a consulting assignment in Segovia, Spain. The elevator in my hotel building had a sign that read, “Occupancy 5.” Someone had crossed it out and jotted down, “Or 3 Americans.” A wake up call! The result is EndLocalHunger™ with a mission to fight food insecurity and hunger in our community.
