Law Enforcement and First Responders Appreciation Lunch
Amanda Riggan will share her testimony of how she found the Lord and the step by step ways he has radically changed her life since then. She will also share how one step of obedience lead to the birth of Hungry Heroes and is making an impact on others.
Amanda Riggan’s passion for serving others has been at the core of who she is her entire life. Whether it be on a ball field coaching, as a caregiver on the board of disabilities, or working in the dementia unit at an assisted living center in her local community, Amanda has always had a huge heart for those in need.
In 2013, she had a major life event in rededicating her faith in Christ and actively began seeking out opportunities to serve others at a larger scale, both state-side and internationally. And in 2018, on a routine route driving for a shipping carrier, Amanda had an incredible conversation with a person in need that sparked not only a viral sensation but a deeply inspirational message to hundreds of thousands of people nationwide.
Through this experience, Amanda had the opportunity to be featured on The Steve Harvey Show, local and national news programs, radio, podcasts, and several other outlets to further the message of hope, love, and service. Then suddenly, a tragedy struck when a local police officer, Detective Mike Doty, and several others were ambushed in a deadly shooting that took Doty’s life. In response, Amanda started with what she knew; the best way to show support and appreciation for the officers who had been shot was to serve them food. And there is no better food in the south than barbecue!
In 2018, Amanda, along with the support of her family and friends, started the non-profit, Hungry Heroes with the mission to give back and show appreciation by serving first responders, military personnel, and veterans through the humble and satisfying gift of food.
