    Donated food the food drive at our kid's High School. We donate because many of the families of kids we've known since Kindergarten are using the local food back for their meals. 70% of the children in our town qualify for free and reduced lunch.

    I live in beautiful Vermont and spend time outside in nature every day, walking my dog, hiking, biking, fishing, skiing or just enjoying the beauty with friends. It is important to me and my family that we protect the natural world for future generations, my son included.
