It was a pleasure to help Margaret Trost get the word out about her work and experience in Haiti, and the writing of her book, On That Day Everybody Ate.

Margaret first traveled to Haiti in the hopes that being of service would heal a broken heart. In this interview, she tells the captivating story of her call to service blossoming into the What If? Foundation, that now funds extensive food and education programs for some of the world’s hungriest children, in Haiti.

From the beginning, the What If? Foundation has worked in partnership with the St. Clare’s community of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The members of St. Clare’s collaborate to prepare and serve thousands of meals every week, enroll students into schools, coordinate an after-school program, and run an annual summer camp. The commitment and expertise of our Haitian partners, combined with the financial resources provided by the What If? Foundation is what makes these desperately needed programs possible.

In this author interview Margaret describes the living conditions in Haiti and her experiences there. She also talks about what you can do to help.
