Kimberly McLendon

1.When you hear the saying "be the change" what comes to your mind first?
I take pride in feeding my family and American children! As a professional chef, I enjoy teaching and filming cooking shows throughout the State of PA and nation! As a Mom, I have a passion for feeding children, and putting an end to childhood hunger in our nation!

2.How would you describe your husband?
My hero is my 102 yr old aunt Yole! She came to America with the clothes on her back and built a family and successful life from nothing. She is living proof that regardless of any circumstance in life, you can go on to live the life of your dreams!

3.If you could revisit one memory as a child in your mind, what would it be and why?
My family! (my husband, Gary and children Madison and Gary!) They are my "constant" support system and no matter what kind of day I may have, it's those night time "belly laughs" and "just on more story, Mom" that keeps me going!!

4.How would someone describe you when you were in high school?
My nick name is, Kimmy! Why, because growing up, I used to fish and race BMX bikes! (I was such a Tom boy) Kimmy sounded a lot like Jimmy. That was the name the neighborhood kids gave me, and it stuck for 35 years!

5.If money did not matter.. what would you buy for your husband and why?
My favorite season is Summer, because I love to be outdoors with my family! We love just about anything outdoors! We also enjoy cooking outdoors, and building a bon fire on those chilly summer nights, and might I add, making smores!
