Mission Statement

The goal of Food 4 the Families is to bring happiness and delicious hot meals to the home's of families that have someone battling cancer.

Description

In 2011, my mother Karla Wallace, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. It was an extremely hard time for not only her, but for our entire family. I was about to begin my sophomore year of high school when my dad gave my brother and me the bad news. I didn't know what to think, I was shocked and scared to death, however I had no choice but to move on with my day to day life.

The one positive in the midst of those trying times, was that I went to a great school and played football and baseball with a great group of kids and families. While my mom was being treated, my friend's families came together to provide us with a delicious home cooked or catered meals, at least two or three times a week.

This was not only a huge help and convenience for our family, but it allowed us to regain a sense of normalcy around the dinner table again.
