This Food Video Should Go Viral

Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 4/09/2013 No comments
I came across a video on YouTube tonight that I think should go viral. It won't, though (it doesn't feature a new dance craze, adorable baby doing something funny, or stupid human/bizarre animal trick). But that won't stop me from sharing it, and telling you why it's so awesome.

It's an inspiring video showcasing a little bit of the great work being done every day in the Charlotte area by Friendship Trays, a nonprofit organization that prepares and delivers meals to elderly or disabled people who are unable to prepare their own meals. Friendship Trays grew from the good deeds of a handful of local churches more than 35 years ago, to operating its own kitchen facility and now utilizing more than 100 volunteers each weekday. Yet, many of you have never heard of this organization.

The video is actually a part of the Good Morning Charlotte series, in which each video shows beautiful scenes of Charlotte--the cityscape and landscape--followed by Friendship Tray staff and volunteers preparing and packaging meals for delivery. You can't help but feel good from watching this.

And if you want to do more than feel good, the organization holds a monthly Breakfast Tour at its Distribution Street facility for people interested in volunteering to learn more about the program. The next tour is Thursday, April 18, 8:30-9:30 a.m.
