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.
