Her experience with her husband and their two kids is what has led Harris to open the nonprofit Food Bank for Kids.
“I’m a mom of two and a child of five, so it’s just hard to be able to do my job and have my kids be healthy and happy,” Harris said.
Harris, who lives in the D.C. area, was inspired to start the nonprofit after witnessing a local child who was diagnosed with Down Syndrome who struggled to eat.
After a discussion with her friends, she decided to start Food Bank because she wanted to give back to her neighborhood, which she describes as a “poor area of the city.”
“It’s been really important to me to help people and give back,” Harris, whose husband works in marketing, said.
The nonprofit has donated food to local hospitals, food banks and other organizations, such as the National Autism Alliance.
Harris said the money helps her family and others who have been denied food and support from food banks.
“It helps them out because they’re not able to eat because they have a disability,” she said.
“If you go to a food bank, it’s not the same, but it’s there.”
Harris has set up an online fundraising page to help support the nonprofit, which was established in November 2016.
She hopes to be open for about two weeks a month, donating about $100 a month.
The Food Bank has been a major source of food to Harris’ family.
Since its start, Harris has raised about $10,000 for the nonprofit.
“My kids have gotten so much food,” she laughed.
I think they’re so grateful for it.”
