The Charities

Daily Bowl
Paddy Iyer
Smart Food Distribution

Daily Bowl is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to gleaning food from local sources that would otherwise go to waste and rapidly redistributing it to needy families. Stores, restaurants, and growers donate excess inventory and slightly imperfect fresh food. Daily Bowl picks up the food items and delivers it to local agency partners that feed the hungry. In addition to addressing hunger, Daily Bowl reduces wasted food by putting it to good use.

Viola Blythe Center
Bernie Nillo
Housing and Humility

Debbie’s mother was Viola Blythe, who was very much a good Samaritan. Viola began giving food and clothing to people in need in 1946. Debbie’s home was the “SHELTER” where people could eat, sleep, shower, and talk to Viola.  They would prepare food boxes, clean up used toys, and Viola even went the extra mile to sew clothes and launder them. It was not unusual to come home from school with two to three families that needed a place to sleep.
