The Fuller Center Hero Project Lake County

I hope you can join me tonight in building something Lake County has never seen before. 

"If you build it, they will come."

I am so honored to be part of the FULLER CENTER HERO PROJECT. I met Yvette Ewing, the Executive Director of the Fuller Center for Housing Lake County earlier in the year as we are both members of Liberty Prairie Foundation's "Lake County Local Food Task force". She asked me about a month ago to join her Wellness Hero team and help her build a mobile teaching kitchen that would service all of Lake County. And of course, I said YES!

Yvette asked me to share my wellness journey for the Hero Party tonight. A little over four years ago, "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall" came on the radio while I was parking my car at a local grocery store late October 2012. For some reason, I paused before turning off my car and began to really listen to the words. I got silly emotional (gazing out my windshield) thinking about food education spreading farther from me and others in the community, kinda like water finding it's way down a mountain. I envisioned a new future for my family and community playing out... I imagined a gathering of heroes who believe in spreading food education for all -


If you cannot join us this evening and would like to be a part of building this Hero Table together, please visit here as every donation will help us build it! 

Have a great weekend all of YOU food revolutionaries!!
