    In this episode we speak with Ethan Amos of Flagstaff Family Food Center. Over 30 years ago, local businessman and philanthropist George McCullough would give his business card to any person he met on the street who needed some help and tell them to head over to the Grand Canyon Cafe for a hot meal and use his business card as payment At the end of the month, he would square up with the restaurant owners, Fred and Tina Wong. McCullough’s generosity became well known around Flagstaff and eventually evolved into a soup kitchen, first opened in the basement of his church. More and more community members became drawn to the mission of feeding those in need and on Christmas Day 1991, the Flagstaff Family Food Center officially opened its doors.
