Finding True Love While Ending Hunger
Most of you probably know that Bread for the World’s mission is to seek justice and end hunger. What you might not realize is that Bread for the World (BFW) also has a reputation for bringing staff together in holy matrimony! In consulting with some long-time Bread staff, there have been at least 10 marriages (one soon to be wedding - which happens to be mine) between BFW staff and at least 2 marriages (but probably many more) between BFW activists in its 33-year history. Today I would like to remember one such couple that met and fell in love while working at BFW.
11 years ago a Bread for the World domestic policy analyst, working on our Elect to End Childhood Hunger Offering of Letters Campaign, decided she needed an intern. So, on this very day eleven years ago, she interviewed a recent college graduate and soon thereafter hired him to be her intern. While Bread does not usually encourage a supervisor/intern relationship, this couple was meant to be; true love was found, which eventually led to a beautiful marriage and an awesome child!!!! Today, I raise my coffee mug to toast and celebrate the eleventh anniversary of the first time Lynette and Will met each other!!
Here’s to finding true love AND ending hunger!
