When seventh-grader Ian McKenna found out that some of his Austin, TX, classmates were going to bed hungry he decided to put his gardening skills to good use. He started gardens in local schools to give those students access to fresh produce and even teaches them how to use it.

Ian won a $5,000 scholarship and matching grant from Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation.
