donations from monthly meals, she’s hoping to raise funds through Hope for Hunger t-shirt sales. She’s currently looking for donations to help pay for the first batch of tshirts, which will be sold for $10 each. “People are hungry all the time, not just at the holidays,” said Prest, who has volunteered for The Josh-
ua Project and seen first-hand the need in Hope. “One meal changes the way a person thinks, feels, it changes their attitude, it changes the way they work. It’s a simple thing and it doesn’t cost much.” For more information about the Hope 4 Hunger initiative, call Prest at 604-749-7122 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

A new initiative has been launched in Hope to help eradicate hunger. Tanya Prest founded Hope 4 Hunger, a non-profit organization, to support The Joshua Project and local schools. “I’m a single mom and the Joshua Project has fed us, helped us and supported us in our long journey,” she said. “I just decided that I wanted to do something for them. It’s important to me since they’ve done so much for us.” Prest is raising money for her cause through monthly meals on the third Saturday of every month. It’s an opportunity for people to come together for a meal, volunteer or make a donation. The first meal, a chilli and hot dog lunch, was held on Dec. 20 at Northwest Harvest Church. The next one will take place on Jan. 24. Prest’s goal is to raise $10,000 to donate to the Joshua Project as well as feed 2,000 children a hot lunch by the end of 2015. In addition to
