Dateline November 20, 2011
In a project that is just a few months old, members of the Humanist Society of Gainesville stepped up to the moral imperatives of humanism by donating food to a local program for hungry school children.
At their November meeting members brought four grocery bags of food items to donate to the Food4Kids backpack program in Gainesville. The program was started in March of 2010 by Jennifer Moore, a parent at Terwilliger Elementary in Gainesville. It has since grown to include ten local schools -- not all of them elementary schools.
