“Ending Hunger, Nourishing Hope” On a local level, the Tampa office volunteered at Feeding America Tampa Bay. I was joined by colleagues, friends, family and bloggers. One out of every six Americans struggle with hunger. That's 50 million people!! I'm a foodie who focuses on fitness and this was one of the reasons North Highland selected Feeding America as our charity in Tampa to volunteer at.

|Cutest Volunteers EVER!|
At the end of the day, we sorted through 10,421 pounds of non-perishable food items. This equals out to about 8,684 meals! The thought that 3 hours out of our day helped place nearly 9,000 meals on the table is simply amazing. Next time you have a few hours to give back to your community, I urge you to volunteer at a food bank. Feeding America has multiple establishments throughout the US.
