We would like to express our sincerest gratitude to all those who came out to support Every Child Fed at Spring to Life! We had a great send off for our VP, Kim Hedge, as she prepares to move to Zambia in April to serve as Country Director. We also raised awareness about malnutrition in sub-Saharan Africa, while celebrating National Peanut Month and National Women’s History Month.

All of the proceeds from this event will go toward building a new facility in Zambia to produce life-saving Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF).

A special thank you goes to our gracious host Peter and Keith of  Southern Hospitality, who generously donated 12% of the evening’s earnings to Every Child Fed.
