After reading an article about a 14 year old girl’ experience about going to a food bank with her family for the first time, Anton Cobb felt inspired to the point when one day, at his lunch time, an idea came to him.
He decided to skip his lunch every Wednesday, and instead of eating, donate his lunch money to the Oregon Food Bank.
He bought a table cloth and made a sign which read “I am skipping lunch. So that 30 children won’t. Will you join me?” and he spent his first hOURLUNCH sitting in a park in Portland.
The support was immediate and overwhelming, and just like that, hOURLUNCH was born. In fact, he has already raised more than 34.000 children’s meals.
