Daniel L. Hampton - A native of New Jersey, Dan began volunteering when he was a teenager, inspired by his parents and influential people around him. In college he volunteered over 100 hours/year, and chaired several programs including Safe Rides, which provided free sober rides to students at night to avoid drinking and driving. Since moving to Leesburg in 2005 Dan has continued his volunteer efforts, as a youth soccer coach. In 2008 he joined the Rotary Club of Leesburg and has served in various positions on the Board including as President. Through Rotary, Dan became aware of the challenges many local students face with food insecurity, so he partnered with fellow Rotarians and other community advocates to create the concept for BBFL in 2013. His passion for solving the issue of food insecurity for children escalated even further with the birth of Dan’s children. Dan and his wife Karen, who is a teacher for LCPS, and their two sons live in Leesburg.
