A number of our staff including Lordy, Alex, Meghan, Mike, Adam, Nathan, and myself, have joined Operation Come Home's fundraising challenge this year: to live on just $24 worth of food for the week of February 6-12. Rather their goal being to "walk a mile", their aim is to raise awareness for food insecurity, and raise funds through donation to fund Operation Come Home's efforts. The Knifewear foundation will be matching all funds raised by Team Knifewear during the challenge!
