CHEF DARNELL FERGUSON TAKING ON THE FOOD CHALLENGE ONE CITY AT A TIME
(Louisville, KY) Darnell “Superchef” Ferguson learned that hunger doesn’t take a day off. He had the opportunity to talk to the team of “Blessings in a Backpack” and they shared with him the staggering number of elementary children that need assistance when it comes to food, particularly on weekends within Jefferson County.
They serve 4,700 children at 43 schools in the Louisville Metro Area. That’s impressive but that’s only 7% of the 64,000 who qualify.
Superchef is ready to take on the challenge and he will be calling on the community to help. It takes approximately $100 to feed one child during a 38-week school year which does not include the summer break.
Darnell says “Can you imagine sitting at home on the weekend and not having enough food and you are counting down the time until you can get breakfast on Monday morning? It’s hard and sad to imagine. I know we as a community can make a difference in the lives of these children and I’m willing to lead the way. We are not going to have a start date because these children needed food yesterday.”
