Come out on April 26th at 6:30 p.m. for a FREE food tasting featuring local restaurants that will be serving up healthy food options and dietary tips.
Vickie Madison, founder of Excellence Girls Club appears on this weeks' show to discuss how the EGC is helping girls across Hampton Roads. More on this 757 non-profit below!
Excellence Girls' Club, Inc. seeks out middle and high school-age girls who display untapped academic and leadership potential. Members enjoy mother-daughter meetings, field trips and college tours, book discussions, weekly educational sessions and a monthly Leadership Institute. They volunteer for community service projects and an annual advocacy project to learn the value of contributing to society. At our annual bonding retreat, we celebrate the growth we've experienced.
When I think of EGC, the word that comes to mind is sisterhood.
A sisterhood that is often taunted, but ultimately cannot be broken.
A sisterhood filled with honesty, confidence and spared feelings.
A sisterhood that's filled with strong minded young women, not naïve little girls.
A sisterhood that means we like your perfections, but love your flaws.
A sisterhood filled with love and gratitude.
A sisterhood that means YOU + ME = UNITY
—Brielle, Excellence Girls' Club, Inc. 2007 Graduate of Woodside High School

50 million people in the U.S.-one in four children-don’t know where their next meal is coming from, despite our having the means to provide nutritious, affordable food for all Americans. One in four American children are "food insecure" - they don't know where their next meal is coming from
Did you know a fast food hamburger cost less than a peach? The reason people are going hungy is not because of a shortage of food it's because of poverty. Naturally for those living in poverty, the idea is to get the most amount of food for the least amount of money The problem isn't about "food stamp queens", or people taking advantage of the system. If another country was doing this to our kids we'd be at war! Help us do something about it. Charity is great, but will NOT end hunger! Call your congress members and insist they make this a priority. Money is wasted on education programs if our children are going to school hungry, they will not be able to concentrate!! What will you do about it?
If you'd like to be a part of the efforts to help this cause please let us know email@example.com
Locate then contact your Congress members to let them know this is not American. http://www.govtrack.us/congress/members/VA
