Skipping Lunch To Feed The Hungry

For Anton Cobb, inspiration came in the form of an online article telling of a girl whose family had benefited from a local food bank. The 32-year-old salesman then decided to turn that inspiration into a simple and creative way to help raise awareness and support for the Oregon Food Bank. Each Wednesday afternoon Cobb sacrifices buying his own lunch to donate to those in need. And sitting alone at a table with a red and white checked tablecloth in downtown Portland, he joyfully invites others to follow suit.
