“Everyone can make tweaks in their lives to help others in need,” says Jess Kurti, a Florida woman behind the Beast of Burden Challenge. Jess recently volunteered for two days with Oregon Food Bank. Why? Because she wants to draw attention to the issue of hunger in the U.S. by volunteering at every food bank that makes up the Feeding America Network. “I believe we can solve hunger in my lifetime,” adds Jess. We do too! Thank you Jess for giving us your time and taking on this challenge. You can follow her progress here.
