In 2013 she was approached by some co-workers about starting a new project to help the hungry, aptly named: Friday Night Fridge Food Raid. This event takes place the last Friday of every month since November 2013 (minus COVID months) where a group of employees and their families meet at 6:30pm on the last Friday of the month, to glean the unopened, unexpired, prepackaged food from 77 kitchenettes in their primary facilities and donate it to a local food pantry, who is a Mid-Ohio Foodbank partner. This is where Deana met Pastor Alex and fell in love with their vision. JPMC’s Operation Feed campaign has donated over 2 million meals and the Friday Night Fridge Raid another 25,000. Deana’s life verse is Matthew 25:
35a: I was hungry, and you fed me. Deana is a long-time member of a local church and worked there for 9 years in their café (where else). Currently she chooses to volunteer her time where needed, especially in the women’s ministry. Deana enjoys spending time with her family and engaging as many as she can to join her journey to end hunger.
