After almost twenty years of searching for the most amazing good people who are working to better our world you get a sixth sense when you find one that you just know will soar given the right nurturing and attention.
That was the case when we met Gary Oppenheimer, founder of AmpleHarvest.org. Gary’s efforts to end hunger in this country starts with registering all of the country’s food pantries and soup kitchens in his online database. To date, more than 4700 (a third) such agencies have signed on as the numbers change daily.
In just a few years AmpleHarvest.org has gained national attention, despite its incredibly low operating costs and minimal staff. So, it was no surprise to us when Gary sent us an email yesterday with the above photo attached.
We hope Gary enjoys his White House visit and thank him for proving us right!
