Women in Cable Telecommunications Washing DC/Baltimore Chapter hosted a virtual discussion with Kimberely Evans on the various non-profit organizations that she has launched. When not managing her day job as an IT Program Manager, Kimberely Evans is always cooking and always looking for ways to help her community. In 2018 she figured out a way to combine the two by selling apple pies to raise money for a family in need, and raised $2,000. This year, she was asked to participate in a program to offer prepared lunches to people in need in Leesburg, VA. She committed to help make 500 sandwiches and again sold apple pies. This time she raised over $5,500!
Kim is the Owner of Generations Gourmet Catering, a Board Member of the Community Foundation for Loudon and Northern Fauquier Counties, and is taking inspiration from the prepared lunches campaign for her next project: Feed Our Village. FOV.Org wants to take the BackPack Program to another level by bringing the option of hot meals to these families in need.
