I am from all over Texas and have been living all over Dallas since 2003. I’ve been a career flight attendant for United Airlines (legacy Continental) since 1996. My sons Jake (age 5) and Hudson (age 3) are my life when I am not flying. We three give our time to family, friends, First Unitarian Church of Dallas and the Dallas Moms Club.
What does Urban Acres mean to you? What makes you want to spend your Saturday morning with us when you do volunteer?
Urban Acres means strength in community to me. It’s a real organization created by people who care and make a difference for people in our community who also care and make a difference. It shows how a cycle of giving back to man and nature can be accomplished and successful on so many levels. I volunteer to show my boys that we all can help. Urban Acres provides the avenue that shows them that they can make a difference in this world, great or small, young or old, it’s never too soon or too late.
Why does local/organic/real food matter to you?
Real, local organic food is important to me for my growing boys, for my health and for the fact that I know we can make a difference on so may levels just with the purchase of local groceries like this. But it is important to our whole world, and it will take each community, including ours, to help the world to understand this. In the long run, because of organizations like Urban Acres, we will get there. We will show the world good food matters.
