Pay It Forward – Nourish Now helps feed the needy through food recovery
Happy Holidays everyone! This is a very special time of year because loved ones are able gather and celebrate with good times and of course great food. However, not everyone is able to have the same experience based on their financial status. Fox 5 DC and Easterns Automotive Group teamed up with an incredible nonprofit called Nourish Now that works actively to feed those less fortunate in Montgomery County, Maryland. They supply approximately 700 families with a five day supply of food each week. Brett Meyers founded Nourish Now after being the manager of a fast food restaurant. He saw so much food go to waste that could have gone to people that really needed it. Many people do not even know that that there is about 133 billion pounds of food wasted in the United States each year while there are people starving. Thanks to Meyers, his nonprofit is able to help change this statistic and work to end hunger through food recovery.
