Incredible Mother’s Day Gift: Donation to Capital Area Food Bank In Mom’s Honor

Is there anything more important than honoring the hardworking, sacrificing, loving mothers in our lives? 

Take Agatha Achindu of Yummy Spoonfuls baby food (pictured above, right), who founded her company with a mission to help mothers everywhere healthfully feed their children, and who has spearheaded Spoonfuls of Giving, the donation of 100,000 Yummy Spoonfuls meals to hungry children. She is pictured above at the Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB), where she donated hundreds of Yummy Spoonfuls meals that will help so many local families. A mother of three herself, helping other moms through nutrition is her life’s passion and mission.

Take Kirsten Bourne, Marketing Director of CAFB, (pictured above, left) who works every day to ensure that the food bank and its 444 community organizations can provide good, healthy food to our DC, MD and VA neighbors who face hunger and food insecurity. Since becoming a mother this year with the birth of her daughter, her work to serve moms like herself has taken on new meaning.

Take this personal story of two generations of mothers doing all they can to raise their children as single moms by Christel Hair, Senior Director of Strategic Partnerships and Community Engagement at CAFB. Christel writes, “During my time at the food bank, I’ve met so many women who are working and raising children like I was, but doing it without enough food. And as hard as it was for me, I know it can be much harder.”

This Mother’s Day, we can honor our mothers, grandmothers or other women in our lives with a gift in their name to the CAFB. Our gift will provide meals to a mother in our area who’s working hard to feed her children, but could use a little support. Your gift will provide life-changing food that can make all the difference to her and her family.

Cool presentation factor: When we make a donation by this Sunday, May 7th and check the “honor/memorial” box, a beautiful card with our personal message will be sent on Mother’s Day. And after Sunday you can still make this special gift and an email will be sent to her inbox explaining the impact of your donation.

Give the gift of a Capital Area Food Bank honor gift this Mother’s Day.
