In Louisiana, 1 in 8 people are struggling with hunger.
Fleur de Light Candles are making a difference in the lives of those struggling with hunger. Through the sales of their See the Light, Feed the Hungry Candles, in cooperation with the Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans and Acadania, they have been able to feed over 19,000 people since August 2011!
I first took notice of the See the Light, Feed the Hungry Candles while working on a blogging project for Second Harvest’s Hunger Action Month last September. I can honestly say that prior to that project, I was not aware how widespread and devastating the problem of hunger is across South Louisiana. The founder of Fleur de Light Candles, Sondra Berger, recalled her parent’s depression era stories of battling food shortages and knew that she wanted to make a difference. It was a quote by Mother Theresa that says, “If you can’t feed one hundred people, feed just one,” that inspired her.
Remember, the purchase of ONE Candle = ONE meal for a family of FOUR!
