Modern Prairie Gives Back

A Message from Melissa

Food insecurity is a problem faced by men, women, and children in every part of the world. 

Please join us in donating your time and talents to feed the hungry in your community, and together we can help heal the divide that creates food disparity in our country. 

For Hunger Action Month, Modern Prairie has partnered with Trusted Prairians across the United States to make it easy for you to get involved.

“As you read my stories of long ago I hope you will remember that things truly worthwhile and that will give you happiness are the same now as they were then.

It is not the things you have that make you happy. It is love and kindness and helping each other and just plain being good.”
