In Michigan, Addy Battel, 15, of Cass City, started “Meating the Need for our Village Hunger” four years ago when her rural town became a food desert. She works with friends and neighbors “to provide high quality protein to low-income members of our community and the communities surrounding us, while and through empowering other youth hunger fighters.”
