Barbour Spangle Design had the opportunity to interview Lisa Hawley, founder of Feeding Lisa’s Kids (FLK), about her volunteer-based group, which feeds children of High Point, NC that otherwise wouldn’t have 3 meals a day.
A. We are out here on earth to love.
A. I started FLK because I watched children put half of their lunch in napkins and put it in their pockets to save for supper. I watched this for years while my kids were in school and felt sick about it long enough then decided to try and change it.
A. 100% of monies given to FLK goes to buying food for High Point children.
A. A Highlight is living in a community full of givers. Everyone wants to help. I love my High Point.
A. High Point is number 7 now in the nation for hunger.
A. I think we were number 2 in the nation for hunger and because of the awareness, so many organizations are now helping and we are number 7.
A. Asking people for money is a challenge for many. I have learned that people want to give and when they find out that 100 percent of their money goes to buying food they are happy about that. It is getting easier to ask. Our people need me and our community so I am not being quiet about it.
A. The people of High Point and surrounding communities have joined together to fight our hunger issues. They show up, they give and they love.
A. To know your neighbors, to feed the poor, and to love our people.
A. I am excited that High Point is growing and the opportunity for work will be there.
It was a pleasure speaking with Lisa and we are honored to share her story here.
