Food unites us, whether we are eating around a family table, sharing a meal at a restaurant, or joining a community pot-luck and chatting with friends and strangers. No wonder Food is a recurring theme in so many Sparkt stories about kindness and caring.
In our Food section, you'll meet the waitress whose faith in young people was restored by the polite teenagers who stacked the dishes and cleaned her table in the middle of a busy shift. Be there for the moment customers changed their server's life by surprising her with a huge holiday tip, and watch the diners who jumped in to help a lone restaurant employee when no one else showed up to work. Learn more about the organization that recruits volunteers to "rescue" leftover food from stores and restaurants and deliver it to the hungry people who need it. And hear the story of neighbors in a remote town who pitched in to cook a community meal for travelers grounded by bad weather and stranded in a hotel with nothing to eat.
Like all of our stories on Sparkt, if there's an opportunity to volunteer to feed people or enjoy a meal and connect with community, we'll link you to it. If you can donate to help feed someone who's hungry, we'll tell you how. And we hope you'll find ideas about how, when it comes to food, your acts of kindness can make a difference!
