The idea for Katie’s Krops started with a nine-year-old girl and a 40-pound cabbage. When Katie Stagliano was in the third grade, she received a tiny cabbage seedling from the Bonnie Plants Third Grade Cabbage Program. She planted the seedling in her backyard, and it grew to a be a 40-pound cabbage. Katie donated her cabbage to a soup kitchen where it helped to feed 275 people. On that day her dream was born to end hunger one vegetable garden at a time. Katie’s Krops empowers youth to start and maintain vegetable gardens where the whole harvest is donated to feed people in need. Youth 9 to 16 years of age can apply to become a Katie’s Krops Grower and start a garden in their community to end hunger.

From the White House to the Capitol Building, to boardrooms and city halls, young people are often left out of the decisions that most affect them. That’s why, at 14 years old, Christopher J. Suggs founded Kinston Teens in October of 2014. Already a recognized voice and representative of youth in his community, he started Kinston Teens as an effort to amplify the voices of all of the youth of Kinston, and to create civic engagement and community service opportunities for his peers.

Mission: Thomas Promise provides backpacks full of food complete with 6 meals and snacks for underprivileged children in Pasco County, FL. The meals help feed children through the weekend when they would otherwise go without. When Brooke Thomas saw some of her 1st-grade classmates go hungry, she would give them her lunch money. When she asked her mom for more money her mom asked, “why?” Brooke’s answer came from the heart – She just wanted to help. Out of Brooke’s compassion rose the Thomas Promise Foundation. Today 24 Pasco schools and over 1,100 children benefit from this program. Now 15 years old, Brooke volunteers at the food pantry daily and inspires her classmates to do the same.
