Jada participated in the July session of the 2013 Youth Summit on Hunger and Poverty. She found herself impacted greatly by the Mobile Food Pantry (MFP) volunteer experience. Along with the other Youth Summit participants and community volunteers, Jada helped distribute food to over 300 families at Collins Memorial United Methodist Church. She noted that many of the clients did not have good quality bags to carry their food. Jada decided to use her Hunger Fighting Action Step to attack the need. Her goal was to collect 500 reusable bags to be donated to ACFB to use at a MFP.
