On Sunday, June 2, Face of Change, The Children’s Hunger Project, United Way and Brevard Hunger Alliance/Project HUNGER are coming together in a joint effort to assemble a substantial number of meals and food packages. This food will have a significant impact over the summer on the malnutrition and hunger problem with young kids in Brevard County.
Volunteers will assemble over 100,000 rice and bean meals and over 6,000 complete packages of food such as those provided each weekend to kids at elementary schools. None of the food will leave our county and will be distributed to Brevard kids over the summer.
We are forming ‘teams’ to package meals at this momentous event. The packing event will give you a team-building experience you will long remember. This is an all-day event (9:00am to 4:00pm) with one to two-hour shifts.

Dr. Clevens has traveled to the East African nation of Tanzania on several medical mission trips with a group from Outreach Africa International, which helps people overcome the effects of poverty in 14 countries. As a result of these experiences, Dr. Clevens established his own 501c3 charitable entity in 2010 known as Face of Change.
This charitable effort is the response of Dr. Clevens and his family to the famine, neglect and poverty witnessed while on medical missions in East Africa and while interacting with folks right in our own backyard of Brevard County, Florida. On his biannual medical mission trips to Tanzania, Israel and Eastern Africa, Dr. Clevens performs surgery for nearly 12 hours per day, correcting cleft palates and lips, repairing burns and other areas of need that are left behind by poor wound healing or trauma.
Dr. Clevens travels abroad at least twice per year setting aside 2-3 weeks for each trip from his busy Central Florida private practice to care for the world’s neediest and most neglected. Dr. Clevens provides care to children and families that would otherwise have no access to medical care. Face of Change has also provided over 250,000 meals in the last year to needy children in families in both Africa and in our own backyard within Brevard County. Dr. Clevens recognizes that there are needy within our own communities and Face of Change has worked hard to bring cares and meals to our own needy neighbors as well as those abroad.
