“I wanted to create this organization long time ago using my networks, helping communities – families & kids – homeless… America welcomed me, gave to my family and me opportunities as it happened for many Italians and Immigrants. I think we all need to give as we received. Covid 19 Outbreak gave me the push to take my phone and call friends, food suppliers, insitutions, colleagues and many others to create and make it happen. Being involed in other nonprofits such Slow Food , AICNY & ADGI, I use my experience to serve Italians Feed America. Jose Andres gave me also inspiration and energy . Fabrizio Facchini, Founder”
