Hungry Heroes Featured Articles
Hungry Heroes has been featured in several news articles throughout the country. We love to continue our mission and the support we get from local media helps drive home our message.
"Met Amanda a few years ago when she became our FedEx delivery driver (lucky us!). She has that personality that just makes you like her immediately. Went to one of her first events and was hooked! The girl can smoke some good food. I have been to several events and witnessed her giving heart and determination to serve those who serve others. Police, fire, medic and military. Being the aunt of a military nephew, it touched me to see her head to a base and feed the masses. I try to purchase her hats and shirts so that I can promote the mission in my home town or wherever I may travel. People ask about Hungry Heroes and I love to tell the story of how it all began. Amanda and her family are hard working and I admire each of them. Not to mention, her mom makes the best slaw ever! A woman who truly "moves her feet"."
"Hungry Heroes has had a huge impact on me personally and professionally. We were the first shift Amanda fed, just after buying her first of 325 Traegers. I have known her for years and her and her family mean so much to me. It has been amazing seeing this grow into what it has."
"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!" - York County Sheriff, Kevin Tolson
