Nora and Bridget McDonough
The McDonough household makes between five-ten meals a week for homebound clients
“You’re caring for the whole person…it’s not just about food.”
From the time Bridget could write,
she would help her mom make meals.
Making meals was always something Nora McDonough and her daughter, Bridget, just did. “I’m a feed the people kind of girl—I can’t wrap my head around how many people are starving around the world and right here in America,” Nora said. And she raised Bridget to be the same way.
Since 1993, when Nora learned about Caring for Friends (CFF), she has been making meals at her home. And watching her mother inspired Bridget’s own passion; From the time she could write, she would help her mom make meals.
Now, the McDonough household makes between five-ten meals a week for homebound clients.
And even though she’s away at college, Bridget continues to help by making meals because she will never be too far from home to forget her family motto: Feed the People. This is one of the many things that led to her winning her college’s Community Service Initiative Award.
“There are so many barriers to go through with other volunteer organizations; CFF just wants your help and is so grateful for it.” – Bridget
