On Christmas Eve 25 years ago I met Father Francis, who founded the St. Francis Food Pantries. Devoting his life to serving New Yorkers, Father Francis started the Food Pantries in a church basement on 30th Street. Today the Food Pantries deliver thousands of cases of food, clothing, and staples throughout the five boroughs, serving twelve to fifteen thousand families every year. All delivered with grace, compassion, and humility.
On November 6th I will run the NYC Marathon. Running for Hunger will inspire my run through the five boroughs and across the finish line. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all of your support and for considering a donation to the Food Pantries!
