Southeast Missouri Food Bank runs across Good Samaritans every day, but Morgan Gadberry is probably the youngest that has walked through the front door. Morgan is a third grader at Kelly Elementary School and is determined to help children in need through the BackPacks For Friday Program. The program provides a backpack of food to hungry children every Friday during the school year. While children are enjoying their summer break, Morgan is working hard to raise money for hungry children. For the second year in a row Morgan held a yard sale and ran a lemonade stand to raise money for BFF. Morgan stopped by the Food Bank with the money she raised, which was more than $200! The smile on her face was priceless. Morgan is an amazing young lady who is already making a difference in the lives of children in Southeast Missouri!
