2016 Experience

We were fighting hunger and feeding hope. Addressing food insecurity throughout the trip, we were actively combating the issues that families face everywhere across the world and we were recognizing many of the things that we often take for granted. ASB is indeed an experience, a venture to gain a new perspective about our world and explore new issues that we may not normally think about in our daily lives.
-Christina Davis, ASB 2016 Social Services participant
