“I love Feed My People. I am removing the hassle of selling my home from my children after I am gone. I will live in the home for the rest of my life, but after I am gone, it becomes Feed My People’s and I get a $92,000 tax deduction on a $120,000 house.  Feed My People serves people in a way they know their dignity is intact.” – Joe Richardson
