On April 21st, we welcome Trina Spillman, co-founder and President of The Need to Feed, Inc., to the show

Trina has a proven track record in both the public and private sectors, and has always approached social issues from a unique vantage point. In fact, 15 years ago Trina and her husband Keith founded The Need to Feed, Inc., an organization dedicated to providing fresh produce for those in need.

When the couple relocated to South Florida, it was clear the mission of The Need to Feed was more important than ever, particularly in Broward County where 286,780 households are facing food insecurity. Sixty six percent of those households do not qualify for SNAP or other nutrition programs.

Over the past year, with the Spillman’s at the helm, The Need to Feed, Inc. has grown over 3,000 pounds of fresh produce at its two garden locations for food pantries in Deerfield, Pompano, Ft. Lauderdale and Hollywood; has conducted planting demonstrations for over 600 participants; has conducted cooking demonstrations for 2,883 participants and has served over 8,000 meals to members of the community.
