"I noticed that at some Mobile Food Pantry sites people didn't have grocery bags to carry their food in," Will said. "I saw them either carrying the food in their arms, struggling to balance it all, or they brought suitcases and empty baby strollers to pile the food in; it wasn't right. They deserved better."
Will wanted to make a difference and make the days of the people brighter and a little easier. He came up with the idea of eco-friendly reusable grocery bags. FROGs distributed over 300 bags this past Saturday, April 5th at the Cherry Lane site.
The Tarrant Area Food Bank serves over 500 families at this site. The patrons line-up, register, then go through an assembly line of food. They choose what they would like to take and are offered fresh produce, meats and an array of other items.
FROGs distributed bags and also volunteered serving the families food ranging from carrots, cabbage, grapefruits, yogurt, vitamin water drinks, lettuce.
"It was so much fun!" John-Thomas said. "We were helping service healthy food to people who needed it! It made them happy!"
FROGs hopes people who hear and see them volunteering will be inspired to ACT when they see a need.
"I saw a need which was the struggle of people carrying the food," Will said. "I saw the need and created a solution. If I can do it...you can too!"
