"I had the pleasure of meeting Amanda and the group from Hungry Hero’s several years ago. You rarely encounter a group that you feel like you have known a lifetime only after one meeting. That’s the feeling you get with everyone from Hungry Hero’s! The heart and soul they put into showing appreciation to emergency services personnel and our troops is an amazing thing to see! Amanda, Steve, and Deborah are the true heroes here. There is no way I could explain just how blessed I have been to get to know them and call them family!" - T. Melton, Chief NREMT
"Amanda Riggan turned a tragedy into something good. Experiencing the loss of a law enforcement officer in the line of duty in York County, Amanda, and her family felt called to serve her community of first responders. Through her hard work, Hungry Heroes has expanded to serve thousands of public safety first responders throughout the United States, directly showing appreciation for the sacrifices made by them every day." - D. Max Dorsey, II, Chester County Sheriff
"After the death of Det. Mike Doty and the wounding of three other officers in 2018, HH was formed and we were immediately notified by Amanda of her desire to feed us. It provided an opportunity for our grieving employees to gather for the single purpose of food and fellowship. HH has fed us on numerous occasions and is truly a blessing to us and our profession. God bless you Amanda and Hungry Heroes!" - Kevin Tolson, York County Sheriff
"Working in the EMS field for 35 years, there are times that the community honestly does not understand what these men and women face each day. Amanda and the Hungry Heroes Team have stepped up time and time again to make sure these first responders are appreciated. It is more than a great meal; it brings the community together in ways to share the love for our first responders. Having witnessed this firsthand, it is truly a blessing." - Robert D.
