Don Campbell loved to cook from an early age. When he was 10 years old, he fed his family and developed his culinary skills. As an adult, Don kept an open table and would feed up to 40 children from the neighborhood at a time. After an earthquake struck Haiti in 2010, he and his wife, Kristen, were inspired to help people recuperate and sustain their lives. Gathering all $9,000 from their life-savings account, the couple partnered with a food-aid organization and founded Feeding Children Everywhere. Just 90 days later, they shipped the first 250,000 meals into Haiti.
Today, Feeding Children Everywhere mobilizes volunteers—from small groups to groups of thousands—who assemble nutritious meals for undernourished children. Since its inception, the organization has delivered more than five million meals around the world and filled the pantries of US public schools through its Love Local program.
