Looking for volunteering opportunities in Knoxville, Dani heads to the Love Kitchen. Started in 1986 by 82-year-old twins Helen and Ellen, the Love Kitchen serves more than 2,000 meals a week to Knoxville's neediest—even delivering meals to homebound members of the community. The Love Kitchen even has a motto: "Everybody is God's somebody," Ellen says.

At the Love Kitchen, Dani jumps right in, chopping, frying and serving meals to the hungry residents of Western Heights. And while delivering food to the elderly and homebound, Dani discovers the true specialties of this great organization. "Whether love in the form of food or love in the form of a hug, a smile, that's what they do," Dani says. "What I love about Helen and Ellen is they are about love."
