Everyone has a role in ending hunger, including inspiring others to action.
One of The Greater Boston Food Bank’s (GBFB) youngest donors, 11-year-old Fei Yang-Sady of Concord, has done just that, raising awareness about hunger and collecting donations for GBFB at her violin recital for the last three years.
At her most recent benefit recital, where she performed alongside a friend, Fei collected over $1,400 in donations, bringing her three-year total to more than $3,000.
“The moment I heard about The Greater Boston Food Bank, I felt so empowered to do something about those who do not have enough food,” said Fei, who is a student at the New England Conservatory Prep Division and has performed with local and international orchestras.
At the recital, Fei spoke about what inspired her to act.
“Imagine a kid that hasn’t eaten in days, especially in the summer, when kids don’t go to school and they won’t get lunch meals or food from their school. To me, that’s horror and I had to do something about it,” she said.
Thanks to young philanthropists like Fei, and donors like you, GBFB can provide kids with the food they need to lead health lives.
