Need to Feed: Meal Delivery for the Homeless

ABOUT ME: 

  My name is Kendall Lord and I am currently a rising junior at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. ​I am a Biology major and a member of Alpha Phi. I have a strong passion for medicine and the aspiration of becoming a doctor. While I am home, I currently volunteer at Summa Health in Akron, but also wanted to give back to the communities in Northeast Ohio through another area that I am passionate about. 



      In high school, I spent time volunteering at the Akron Food Bank and Cleveland Food Bank, which are hunger relief programs. Currently, Covid-19 has greatly affected Cuyahoga County and the homeless with nearly 20% of the population being considered food insecure. The pandemic has made it even more difficult for the homeless to find access to food and supplies. This gave me the idea to start Need to Feed: Meal Delivery for the Homeless. 


WHAT THE MONEY WOULD BE USED FOR:
     
     As an unemployed college student, I am unable to completely fund the purchase of food to make bagged meals for the homeless by myself. If I receive enough funding, I would like to purchase meals from local businesses to help support them as well.  Any support would be greatly appreciated!
