“IF YOU CAN’T FEED ONE HUNDRED, THEN FEED JUST ONE”
-Minnie’s Food Pantry
This past Monday my team and I got to participate in a night that we will never forget. The Feed Just One Gala is the annual fundraiser for a North Dallas organization called Minnie’s Food Pantry that has an inspiring record of serving millions of meals to the community in which they serve. A little unknown fact about me is my first degree is in Human Services; therefore this type of work will always hold a special place in my heart. The night was very eventful with a silent and live auction, a live performance by BeBe Winans, star honorees, and of course the power house that carries the vision; Dr. Cheryl “Action” Jackson.
I learned about Minnie Food’s Pantry around November of 2014. Dr. Cheryl and I both share a love for Oprah Winfrey. After the Life You Want Tour Houston, she was one individual that I knew I had to find out more about. When I discovered the impact she was making with Minnie’s Food Pantry, I knew I had to get involved and support in some way. Chase Dowell Interior Design was able to donate a home accessories package and an interior design consultation to the silent auction. My team and I are looking forward to getting back to Dallas to volunteer for this great organization soon.
The theme of the gala was Dream Bigger. I can assure you, after leaving the event I started to dream a little bigger. I was so moved by all the support in the room around a common cause of fighting hunger.
