Anita resize

Anita Hagspiel of Northborough, MA was raised in a household where she was taught to waste-not, want-not. For her mother, growing up on a farm meant money was tight, and the family often had to choose between necessities.  She instilled a deep caring and respect for people who don't have enough food, in her daughter, Anita. Her mother would serve her a delicious home-cooked meal and insist she would clean her plate, that there were other people who were going without. This sentiment resonated with Anita throughout her life and first led her to participate in the Walk for Hunger in 1986.
