Why I Started Fencers Bouting Hunger

​Those of you that know me well, are aware that I am a foodie. I recognize how fortunate I am to be able to eat many delicious meals as I travel throughout the country for fencing. However, I also understand that there are many people who are not as fortunate and in fact go to bed hungry.
As I researched the topic of hunger in my community, I was surprised to learn that in my area there are people who cannot afford to put food on their tables. I decided that I wanted to help, so I started a food drive at my fencing club and donate all the collected food to a local food bank. When I realized how wide spread the problem was, I wanted to do more to try and get others involved. My hope is to get other fencing clubs across the county to join me in this fight against hunger.

​The positive feedback I have received to this initiative led me to expand the program to include selling Fencers Bouting Hunger merchandise. The sales of t-shirts to raise money for hunger relief charities has gotten off to a great start. ​As a result, I will be adding more merchandise to sell to help fund this cause. I am really excited about the opportunities that lie ahead with FBH, so stay tuned and check back often.
​ I created this website to be a place where people could learn about hunger relief and ways to help. Whether it is donating food, money, or time, I know with your support, we can make a difference in helping to bout hunger.

Thank You,
